As of January 8, 2022, Tzu Chi volunteers from Tacloban, Palo, and Ormoc released cash assistance to victims of Typhoon Odette with the cooperation of Metrobank.

 

Almost 2,000 families from Liloan, Southern Leyte went to Metrobank Sogod Branch in Southern Leyte to claim the cash aid from January 6 to January 7. Volunteers were on hand to assist and manage the continous arrival of typhoon victims who were given stubs indicating the amount that will be given to them. Family units with 1-2 members received P10,000, families with 3-4 members got P15,000, and families with 5 or more members received P20,000.

 

Those who got their cash relief were all smiles as they left the bank. They also extended their deepest gratitude to Tzu Chi Foundation for the immediate relief given to them, since the funds will help them rebuild their homes and restore their lives as well.
