Thirty displaced families will receive livelihood starter kits for sewing this month from the City Government through the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWDO) in line with the city’s intensified livelihood assistance project.

City Social Welfare and Development Officer Ma. Socorro Rojas spearheaded the distribution of the sewing starter kits over the weekend with the first 16 beneficiaries coming from different barangays. The beneficiaries were displaced persons caused by disasters such as fire, the 2013 siege or conflict and or those affected by work closure

The livelihood support program is intended for identified displaced families mostly affected by the 2013 siege and others for being jobless but skilled in the sewing category.

Social field workers identify the recipients following assessment and validation of data in the barangays.

A number of displaced families has already benefited from the livelihood support program since the start of this year. — Sheila Covarrubias
