Php10,000; Php15,000; and Php20,000 Cash Assistance for Odette Victims in Bohol
By Tzu Chi Bohol
Tzu Chi Foundation, the largest Buddhist humanitarian organization partnered with First Consolidated Bank (FCB) opened its entries to help accelerate the distribution of cash assistance to the most affected areas by typhoon Odette.
Six towns in selected barangays in Bohol were able to receive cash assistance from Tzu Chi Foundation. Among towns were Tubigon, Inabanga, Getafe, Bien Unido, Ubay and CPG island.
On January 28, Tzu Chi Foundation distributed coupons to these places. Four teams were designated in different towns to ensure that the giving of coupons will be done in a single day.
While having the distribution, recipients truly have no idea about the type of assistance they are about to receive since volunteers want to arouse their excitement as they go along with the program.
As the volunteers announced the assistance after the coupon, as well as the amount of cash they will receive, the crowd went wild as they knew the surprise behind it.
As stated, households which are composed of 1 to 2 members will receive Php10,000; those 3 to 4 members will receive Php15,000; and Php20,000 will be given to five or more members of their household.
On the next day, January 29, where the cash distribution happened in every town’s FCB branches, volunteers, youths, PNP personnel, and LGU representatives controlled the crowd, made them lined up, and assisted them appropriately.
FCB releasing personnel volunteered to prepare the cash to give to the recipients and ensure the safety and efficient distribution.
Recipients were very excited and could see hope in their faces as they hold the cash in their hands, as it is a big help for them to rebuild their homes.
A total of 4,889 beneficiaries received cash aid from Tzu Chi Foundation.
As the teams traveled home, recipients were truly grateful and blessed for such a time, Tzu Chi has been a blessing to recover themselves from the traumatic typhoon. They extended their deepest gratitude to the Tzu Chi Foundation for the love and care they felt. Surely, the money they received would help them rebuild their homes and regain their faith.
