Fernandinos Rewarded For Gardening, Planting Works [ Friday, 29th of January 2021 | 1 month ago ]
A total of 200 Fernandinos were rewarded with cash incentive of P3,000 on October 28, 2020 for supporting the food security and hunger mitigation initiative of both the national and local government.
The said beneficiaries were aided through the Cash-for-Work project under the climate change adaptation and mitigation program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region III, together with the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO).
Being a regular program of the DSWD, the agency said that for this year, it was intended to help address the adverse effects in food production of the COVID-19 pandemic, through planting and gardening projects.
“Since nararanasan pa rin natin ang pandemiya ngayon, naging prayoridad natin sa programa ay ang hunger mitigation and food security dahil nakita nating nahihirapan na mag-purchase ng pagkain ang mga tao at sa kanilang pagtatanim, makasisiguro tayong ligtas at sariwa ang kanilang mga kakainin,” explained Keith Richard Carpio, DSWD Regional Office III Project Development Officer II.
For this edition of the program, Bernadette Maniago, City Social Welfare Officer II, said that they prioritized the affected members of the transport groups and some household members from six barangays.
These barangays include Alasas, Del Rosario, Malpitic, San Agustin, San Isidro, and San Pedro.
“Ang programa natin ay ginawa sa loob ng sampung araw kung saan ang ating target beneficiaries na tricycle drivers, public utility jeepney drivers, at household members, nakiisa sila sa pagtatayo ng community vegetable gardens,” Maniago said.
The City Government shouldered the provision of seedlings, fertilizers, and planting and gardening equipment while the harvested vegetables can be shared or sold among the community members.
The Cash-for-Work project, as described by DSWD, “is a short-term intervention to provide temporary employment to distressed/ displaced individuals by participating in or undertaking preparedness, mitigation, relief, rehabilitation or risk reduction projects and activities in their communities or in evacuation centers.”
The program has been implemented in the city since 2016, where several programs on desilting of waterways, widening of canals, and maintenance of Materials Recovery Facility were done.
