DSWD staff talks to a typhoon victim during the validation of damaged houses in Eastern Visayas.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-Field Office VIII has been conducting validation of damaged houses in Eastern Visayas to identify  families who will receive construction materials.

The Field Office said that 75,000 pieces of 3×9 GI sheets and nails will be distributed through the Department of Energy (DOE) to homeless Yolanda victims, particularly in the badly hit municipalities of Guiuan, Eastern Samar and Tanauan, Leyte.

DSWD will monitor the distribution of the construction materials. On the other hand, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will transport the materials to the affected barangays. Each household-beneficiary will be given cards which will serve as their identification during the release of GI sheets.

In Tanauan, some 2,290 GI sheets will be initially distributed to 141 households from Brgy. Guingauan while 3,055 will be given to 216 households in Brgy. Cahumayhumayan.

Relief efforts in C. Visayas

Meanwhile, more than 100,000 family food packs were already distributed to typhoon devastated areas in Cebu province. Most of the relief goods went to the towns in the Northern part of Cebu such as Bantayan, Borbon, Carmen, Catmon, Consolacion, Daan Bantayan, Madridejos, Medellin, Pilar, Poro, San Francisco, San Remegio, Santa Fe, Sogod, Tabogon, Tabuelan, Tudela as well as Cities of Bogo, Cebu, Mandaue, and Talisay.
“We will still continue to dispatch family food packs to Northern Cebu per request of local government units (LGUs),” Regional Director Mercedita Jabagat said.

“We are also sending the donations given by various foreign donors,” Dir. Jabagat added. Director Jabagat also said that DSWD will soon implement cash-for-work (CFW)  in the province. Under the CFW, each beneficiary will be given cash assistance which is 75 percent of the minimum wage in their local area in exchange for 15 days of disaster rehabilitation work.
