Financial assistance worth P5,000 will be given to each household whose homes were totally damaged by Typhoon Odette in Cebu Province.
There are at least 90,000 families on the list though verification by LGUs is still ongoing.
This financial assistance is not in cold cash but given through a digital coupon system. These cash cards given have a unique QR code and bear the name of the beneficiaries. The “how to use” will be explained by LGUs and Provincial Board Members during distribution.
Note that they can only be used for necessities more importantly building materials. With this money, one can purchase galvanized iron (GI) sheets, wood, fiberboards, and other building materials already.
Other establishments you can use are Capitol-partner supermarkets, hardware stores, and even department stores.
Take note it cannot be withdrawn and cannot be used for anything else.
The main reason for this coupon system is for the funds to circulate within Cebu. When it is spent through our own merchants and businesses in Cebu, it can help the economy.
We will slowly and surely rebuild Cebu. Dasig lang, Sugboanons.
