To ease the burdens of the families of uniformed personnel- the policemen and soldiers, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) 12 through its North Cotabato Field Office (NCFO) facilitated the release of livelihood assistance on September 18, 2018 given to dependents of 16 uniformed personnel who were injured and killed in action.


In a report to DOLE 12 regional director Sisinio B. Cano, NCFO head Marjorie Latoja said that a total of Php 298,289.20 were given to dependents of WIA/KIA in the form of starter kits and goods for the following projects: sari-sari stores, Peso Net, E-load retailing, chorizo and rice retailing.


“Nagapasalamat dyud ko nga nahatagan ko ug assistance kay sukad nga namatay akong bana katong 2014 wala pa dyud kami nadawat nga assistance, first pa dyud namo ning sa DOLE” (I’m thankful for the assistance given to me because since my husband died in 2014, we never received any assistance and this one from DOLE is our very first assistance), said Lorlene Apostol.


Apostol is one of the beneficiaries and widow of the late Sgt. Andreo Apostol who was killed during official operation in Marawi in 2014.


DOLE 12 regional director Sisinio Cano said that DOLE is always ready to help and to assist the families of uniformed personnel who become victims of work-related contingencies and ensure them of their access in the basic programs of DOLE through the presence of its field offices in the region.


The Department of Labor and Employment is mandated to assist the families or legal dependents of policemen and soldiers who were either wounded in action or killed in action through its livelihood programs and Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) for their qualified children.
