LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — Some 2,000 families in the Province of Bohol had received P5,000 Humanitarian Cash Transfer (HCT) Plus assistance early this month.
HCT Plus was given to super typhoon Odette-affected families, through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
The cash assistance was released through UNICEF’s financial service provider. Each beneficiary was given a unique transaction reference code.
Of the beneficiaries, 537 are from the municipality of Tubigon, and 1,453 are from the municipality of San Isidro.
Beneficiaries from San Isidro were also given an additional P100 as a transportation subsidy to cover their trips to and from the nearest RD Pawnshop, where they could withdraw their cash grants.
UNICEF also conducted learning sessions through a limited face-to-face discussion on child health and nutrition, protection, COVID-19 infection control, water sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
