P4.9 M aid given to families affected by Typhoon Rosita
by Press release

A total of P4.9 million worth of relief assistance has been provided to families affected by Typhoon Rosita since Nov. 1, coming from the combined resources of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, local government units, non-government organizations, and other groups.

DSWD Sec. Rolando Bautista said disaster teams from the different field offices of the department in areas affected by Typhoon Rosita continue to assist LGUs in their relief operations.

A total of 36,600 families or 136,647 persons from 1,143 barangays, 193 cities/municipalities, and 20 provinces in regions 1, 2, 3, 8, and Cordillera have been affected by the typhoon.

Around 492 evacuation centers providing temporary shelter to 12,866 families or 49,470 persons remain open in the affected regions.

To ensure that additional needs of affected families are immediately met, the DSWD National Resource Operations Center in Pasay City sent P17,712,000 worth of family food packs and P3,559,500 worth of non-food items to DSWD field offices in regions 2, 3, and the Cordillera. These are ready for distribution to LGUs upon request for resource augmentation.

Meanwhile, trained staffs from the United Nations Children’s Fund and United Nations Population Fund are on standby to provide gender-based and child protection response.

The DSWD continuously coordinates with the logistics cluster of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council for the availability of air, sea, and land assets for the mobilization of relief goods to affected areas, when necessary.

“I commend our disaster teams for responding to the call of duty,” Bautista said, recognizing the sacrifices of personnel who are on the ground to assist evacuees during All Saints’ Day.
