DAVAO CITY — More than 6,000 residents in this city’s first district stand to benefit from the continuing cash-for-work project of the First Congressional District Office with the coordination with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Through the agency’s Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) program, the ongoing payout at the People’s Park here is expected to cover all 6,000 beneficiaries by the end of the month.

According to the office of Davao City 1st District Representative Paolo “Pulong” Duterte, the Kalahi-CIDSS is a poverty alleviation program of the national government implemented by the DSWD.

Cash-for-work is a short-term program that allows distressed/displaced people to gain temporary employment by engaging in or carrying out preparedness, mitigation, relief, rehabilitation, or risk reduction initiatives and activities in local communities or evacuation centers.
