AT LEAST 112 internally-displaced persons (IDPs) have been employed as the rehabilitation's livelihood cluster, with support from the International Labor Organization (ILO), has launched an emergency employment project for people displaced by the 20-day standoff last September in Zamboanga City.

Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said the IDPs have started working last Friday until December 30, this year.

Salazar said they were tasked to undertake drainage clearing in the village of Tugbungan, Talon-Talon and Kasanyangan, and along Veterans Avenue and Pilar Street.

The employed IDPs were placed under the supervision of the City Engineer's Office.

Salazar said each of the IDPs receive a P280 salary a day. They will receive double pay for work done on Christmas Day and on Rizal Day (December 30).
