The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has released P199 million in relief to families affected by ‘Odette.’

The Department of Social Welfare and Development – Caraga (DSWD-13) has distributed PHP199,180,000 in cash to families in the provinces of Surigao del Norte and Dinagat Islands who were impacted by Typhoon Odette in December last year.

The DSWD-13 stated in a statement on Tuesday that the monetary assistance directly helped 39,83 families.

“The monies were made available through the agency’s Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation program,” the agency stated.

As of Monday, 16,194 impacted families in the Dinagat Islands have received a total of PHP80,970,000 in monetary assistance, according to the report.

PHP103,320,000 was also distributed to 20,664 people on Siargao Island and PHP14,890,000 to 2,978 families in the province’s mainland municipalities in Surigao del Norte.

On February 6, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) – 13 handed over a total of 8,158.31 board feet of confiscated lumber goods to Surigao del Norte Governor Francisco Matugas and First District Representative Francisco Jose Matugas.

The lumber products will be dispersed throughout Siargao Island’s typhoon-affected municipalities.

Two tables and circular saws, which are part of a mini-sawmill on wheels, were also deployed on the island, according to the DENR-13.

The sawmill on wheels deployment is part of DENR’s Task Force Build Back Better initiative, which aims to help residents and businesses on the island restore their damaged homes and businesses.
