DOLE region 2 proud of Bello

The regional office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in region 2 is proud of Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III who was recently named the ‘Natatanging Cagayano Award’ for the Dangal ng Lahing Cagayano 2021.

The ‘Natatanging Cagayanon’ title is given to men and women with outstanding, exemplary and illustrious performances and achievements as leaders and citizens of the Republic.

They are Cagayanons who made a name not only in the province, but also in the national and international arena, and contributed to the progress and development of communities and the nation.

“Bello has contributed to the promotion and protection of workers’ rights and the attainment of decent employment in the Cagayan Valley Region, and the country as a whole, through his leadership in the implementation of the department’s varied programs and services,” Joel Gonzales, DOLE region 2 director, said.

“In 2020, Bello led the provision of the Covid-19 Adjustment Measures Program assistance for pandemic-affected formal sector workers, the first emergency assistance of its kind created since the implementation of community quarantine in March of last year,” Gonzales said.

“During the massive flooding caused by typhoons in Cagayan and Isabela provinces last year, Bello again stood in the forefront of the provision of assistance to displaced workers, pouring help through the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers program to more than 20,000 informal sector workers affected by the calamity,” he added.

To assist in the peace and development efforts and in keeping with his role as the Cabinet executive for regional development and security, Gonzales said Bello recently earmarked a total of P50 million for DOLE livelihood projects in 100 influenced barangays in Region 2 to help end the local communist armed conflict. ###

DOLE region 2 ipinagmamalaki si Bello

Ipinagmamalaki ng regional office ng Department of Labor and Employment sa Region 2 si Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III na pinarangalan kamakailan bilang ‘Natatanging Cagayano’ para sa Dangal ng Lahing Cagayano 2021.

Ibinibigay ang titulong ‘Natatanging Cagayano’ sa kalalakihan at kababaihan na may katangi-tangi at napakahusay na pagganap bilang pinuno at mamamayan ng Republika.

Sila ang mga Cagayanos na nakilala hindi lamang sa kanilang lalawigan, kundi pati na rin sa loob at labas ng bansa, na nagkaroon ng malaking bahagi sa pag-unlad at pagsulong ng pamayanan at ng bansa.

“Sa pamamagitan ng kanyang pamumuno sa pagpapatupad ng iba’t ibang programa at serbisyo ng kagawaran, malaki ang naging papel ni Secretary Bello para sa pagsulong at sa proteksiyon ng karapatan ng mga manggagawa at sa pagkamit ng disenteng trabaho sa Cagayan Valley Region, at ng bansa sa pangkalahatan,” pahayag ni Joel Gonzales, DOLE region 2 director.

“Noong 2020, pinangunahan ni Bello ang pagkakaloob ng Covid-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP) para sa mga manggagawa sa pormal na sektor na naapektuhan ng pandemya, ang kauna-unahang tulong na naipamahagi mula nang ipatupad ang community quarantine noong Marso ng nakaraang taon,” ani Gonzales.

“Sa panahon ng malawakang pagbaha na dulot ng mga bagyo sa lalawigan ng Cagayan at Isabela noong nakaraang taon, nanguna rin si Bello sa pagbibigay ng tulong sa mga manggagawang nawalan ng trabaho sa pamamagitan ng programang Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) sa mahigit na 20,000 manggagawa sa impormal na sektor na naapektuhan ng kalamidad,” dagdag niya.

Upang makatulong sa pagsisikap na mapanatili ang kapayapaan at kaunlaran at alinsunod sa kanyang tungkulin bilang Gabinete para sa kaunlaran at seguridad sa rehiyon, sinabi ni Gonzales na naglaan si Bello ng kabuuang P50 milyon para sa proyektoong-pangkabuhayan ng DOLE para sa 100 barangay sa Region 2 upang makatulong na wakasan ang local communist armed conflict. ###
