MANILA, Philippines — The beneficiaries of the Department of Social Work and Development’s (DSWD) Cash for Work Program have been fully paid, a Radyo Inquirer 990AM report said.

Under the program, each beneficiary received P222 per day of work. They would work in various community projects such as cleaning the shorelines, food production, and mangrove and tree planting.

DSWD secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman gave a P2 million check to the local government for the implementation of the program, the report said.
