Kanya-kanyang kuha na lang! Gwen Garcia distributes basic home construction materials for Odette victims
Gwendolyn Garcia has made it easier for typhoon Odette survivors in Cebu to start rebuilding their homes.
Instead of giving away cash, the governor opted to purchase the basic materials already and farm it out to local government units. In turn, evacuees were given Dasig Sugbo cards for them to claim a set of materials from the city or municipal halls in their area.
The value: between P5,000 to P8,000 per family.
“The Provincial Government has sent the initial bulk supplies of construction materials such as GI sheets, cement boards, plywoods, and screw nails, among others to the affected LGUs,” the politiko explained.
“Beneficiaries will need to present their Dasig Sugbo cards at their LGUs to get the needed building materials, and they may redeem the remaining amount to buy basic goods at the partner-supermarkets of the program.”
