Three thousand nine hundred families from 27 barangays in six municipalities in Bohol were the recipients of 30,000 pieces of Galvanized Iron (GI) sheets, the latest form of assistance from Tzu Chi Foundation to the victims of Super Typhoon Odette (international name Rai).

 

The corrugated GI sheets were made to order in the thicker gauge 26 to ensue durability when exposed to the elements or in the event of another storm.  Local leaders and Tzu Chi volunteers conducted the orderly distribution of GI sheets to 704 families in Tubigon, 692 families in Inabanga, 1,036 families in Ubay, 605 families in Getafe, 463 families in Bien Unido, and 400 families in Carlos P. Garcia.

 

Since the Category 5 Storm slammed into parts of the Visayas and Mindanao a few days before Christmas 2021, leaving billions of pesos in damages to lives and properties in its wake, Tzu Chi volunteers have worked tirelessly to help get victims back on their feet.

 

In Bohol, which volunteers personally visited to assess the extent of Odette’s destruction, Tzu Chi has donated rice to 20,000 families in 10 relief areas. It has also distributed 100 cartons of water filter, 500 containers of water gallon, and 480 cartons of biscuits.

 

Cash assistance, depending on the number of family members, was given to 4,706 families in six relief areas. Households with 1-2 members received Php10,000; those with 3-4 members received Php15,000; and Php20,000 was given to households with 5 or more members.

 

Areas where power was knocked off by Odette also received generator sets. Six municipalities each accepted a generator set with 15KVA capacity, while five municipalities each claimed a generator set with 7.5 KVA. 

 

Bohol and other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao still need our help. Through Tzu Chi Foundation, your pledge will go a long way in providing Odette survivors with food, water, and other basic needs.
