160 Kalinga families benefit from Red Cross shelter assistance program

Tabuk City, Kalinga (21 May) -- Around 160 families affected by last year's typhoon recently received full house replacement through the Core Shelter Assistance program of Red Cross Tabuk Chapter.

Kalinga Red Cross Administrator Glorina Diaz said that the core houses were distributed in the municipalities of Tabuk, Pinukpuk and Rizal, which were hardly hit by Typhoon Pepeng that hit the province last October 2009.

Diaz said 35 full house core shelters went to Rizal, 27 to Pinukpuk and the rest were distributed in various parts of Tabuk City. Beneficiaries gave counterpart through labor and manpower.

Part of the scheme is the relocation of the typhoon victims, where at least 50 families were provided space in a relocation site in Lanna, Tabuk City. The other families opted to relocate in their family owned lands.

Diaz explained that the project took several months before the assistance reached the families as it has to undergo the process and comply with the requirements of the sponsor, the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC).

According to Diaz, this project will serve as a model for other core assistance program in the province.

She said that P1,033 houses destroyed by typhoons last year were also repaired by the Red Cross in the province. (ggdumallig/PIA-Kalinga) [top]
