The Department of Social Welfare and Development and members of the disaster response cluster met to discuss strategies to reach isolated areas affected by Typhoon Rosita in Regions 2 and the Cordillera.

DSWD Sec. Rolando Bautista, joined by DSWD Field Office Region 2 Director Leonardo Reynoso and DSWD-Cordillera Director Janet Armas, presented updates on the disaster response operations and initial damage assessments in the two affected regions during the response cluster meeting held in Cauayan, Isabela last Thursday.

“One of the isolated areas that we are targeting to reach is Natonin, Mountain Province. We are consistently coordinating with other cluster members for logistics support to deliver relief assistance to the area,” Bautista said.

As of Friday, a total of P6,113,299.95 worth of assistance has been provided to the affected families, of which P4,848,560.75 worth of aid came from the DSWD; P1,253,139.20 from LGUs, and P11,600 were extended by non-government organizations and other groups.

The DSWD Disaster Response and Management Bureau also reported that displaced families have already returned home, with only 247 families or 840 individuals staying in 21 evacuation centers in regions 2, 8, and CAR. All evacuation centers in regions 1 and 3 have been closed. DSWD field offices 1 and 3 will proceed to early recovery phase.

DSWD field offices are set to validate reported damaged houses in coordination with LGUs for the provision of emergency shelter assistance.
