“Isa lamang po ang Cash-for-Work sa ating mga programang ipinagkakaloob natin sa mga mamamayan ng San Juan para magbigay ng pansamantalang trabaho at mapagkakakitaan (The Cash-for-Work is just one of the programs we’ve initiated for our citizens as we help them have a temporary job and source of income),” San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora said.

Zamora added that the program aims to lessen the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic on those who have lost their jobs.

Under the DSWD’s Risk Resiliency Program-Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Disaster Risk Reduction (RRP-CCAM DRR), the beneficiaries were given temporary employment through the cash-for-work scheme such as communal gardening.

The program focuses on empowering communities to become resilient.
