Navotas City has provided jobs to 1,237 poor residents under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program.

TUPAD workers were assigned to sweep streets and de-clog drainage canals.

“We have 57 bombastik pumping stations that help keep our city flood-free. However, they will not be able to siphon floodwater if our canals are clogged with garbage. This is why we need you to help us keep our streets litter-free and our canals unobstructed by any matter,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

“If you see someone littering, stop them. Tell them that improper waste disposal is prohibited and could cause flooding. Having city cleaners does not mean residents can get away with irresponsible disposal of garbage,” he added.

TUPAD beneficiaries will work for 15 days and will receive a daily minimum wage of P537.  

During their orientation and contract signing, they were given lectures on occupational safety and health, proper work values, basic first aid, and psychosocial support.
