The Department of Social Welfare and Development-Region VI (DSWD-6) is seeking 8,000 workers in Boracay as part of a cash-for-work (CFW) program.
According to DSWD-6 Director Rebecca Geamala, applicants must be workers and local residents affected by the closure of resort destination Boracay.
Jobs associated with the program include digging, dredging, reforestation, pathway clearing, illegal structure demolition, debris clearing, garbage collection, support facilities installation, among other duties.
Personnel will be paid a P323.50 daily wage or, with the program lasting for 30 days, a total P9,705.
Workers will be assigned to any of the three barangays on the island.
Earlier this week, DSWD revealed, as of May 10, just over P15 million had been distributed to Boracay workers and residents impacted by the island’s closure.
According to Geamala, at the time, a total 6,227 had received benefits from the government agency./WDJ
