Workers in Metro Manila are posting their thank you messages to DOLE on Facebook for their 5k assistance through COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP).

“Thank you so much #ncrdoleCAMP, all our staff got their 5K subsidy from the government. In this time of crisis, ramdam namin ang tulong n’yo, maraming salamat.”

“We express our sincerest gratitude to the Department of Labor and Employment for the Php 5,000.00 financial assistance you have provided for all of us. During this very difficult time, your agency, your regional office – DOLE NCR together with the Duterte administration, truly made us feel that we all mattered.”

As of March 26, 2020, the processing of CAMP applications at DOLE-NCR has reached 3,682 beneficiaries from 176 of establishments. At this point, the regional office has released over Php 18 million worth of financial assistance directly through money remittance partners.

“We recognize the plight of those workers who are yet to receive their 5k financial assistance from DOLE. But rest assured that we are diligently and swiftly processing all CAMP requests,” said DOLE-NCR Regional Director Sarah Buena S. Mirasol.

DOLE-NCR also reminded employers to ensure completeness of documentary requirements, including the updated contact numbers of their affected workers to help DOLE in notifying clients on the status of their application.
