Caecent No-ot Magsumbol - The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines — Job-order personnel and contract-of-service providers along with security guards and janitors of the Department of Tourism’s Central Office are set to receive free accident insurance from Tourism chief Christina Frasco.

A total of 219 JOs and service providers from DOT’s Central Office are expected to benefit from Frasco’s generosity as she personally funded it as DOT chief.

A DOT post said this is Frasco’s token of appreciation for their hard work during the past two years of the current administration.

The insurance coverage is intended to provide financial aid to the employees in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

“I’m really hopeful na sa pamamagitan ng maliit na gift na ito (na) handog namin sa inyo, na maramdaman niyo kung gaano kayo namin minamahal dito sa Department of Tourism. We’re very grateful for your service. We know na hindi natin maaabot iyong lahat ng nagawa na natin in less than two years kung wala ‘yong inyong contribution sa ating departamento,” Frasco said in a meet and greet with the JOs and the service providers as part of the DOT’s 51st founding anniversary.

The accident insurance coverage is reportedly worth around ?10.9 million. The free insurance coverage is valid for one year and is renewable the following year.

“Huwag niyo isipin na dahil hindi regular iyong status ng employment ninyo na iyong contribution ninyo is not appreciated by us. We appreciate all of you, we appreciate all of your contributions, and we earnestly hope and pray that this will encourage you to continue the hard work that you’ve been giving to the department in support of this administration,” added Frasco.

Joesel Vival of the Office of Product and Market Developments thanked Frasco on behalf of the JOs and service providers.

“It’s truly heartwarming to see that our head of the agency recognizes the efforts of all employees, not just (those in) permanent positions, but also job orders. Regardless of the employment relationship status, this token of appreciation speaks volumes about the secretary’s commitment to inclusivity and appreciation for everyone,” Vival said. (CEBU NEWS)
