ILIGAN CITY (PIA) — As part of the Shock Responsive Social Protection (SRSP) program, Plan International rolled out the distribution of food packs to fire victims in Barangay Buruun in this City.
A total of 10 affected families received a food pack containing six kilos of rice, 15 canned goods, packs of cereal drinks, and coffee.
Meanwhile, 20 affected families in Barangay Tambacan are set to receive cash assistance. Twelve families will receive P10,000 cash, one family will receive P7,000 and seven families will receive P5,000.
SRSP is just one of the programs implemented under the Moving Urban Poor Communities towards Resilience (MOVE UP) 4 Mindanao funded by the European Union.
MOVE UP 4 project manager John Tamayo said that the beneficiaries were selected through the assessment process of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO).
“Ito ay nakadepende sa ginawang vulnerability assessment na ginawa ng CSWDO, meron individual case profile at nakalatag doon ang vulnerability conditionalities at aggravating factor bakit sila nakatanggap ng ganitong amount,” he said.
[It depends on the vulnerability assessment done by CSWDO, there is an individual case profile and there are vulnerability conditionalities and aggravating factors why they received this amount.]
Since 2019, Plan International partnered with the CSWDO and City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office to implement the MOVE UP 4 Mindanao program. (LELA/ PIA Lanao del Norte)
