The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) has built a total of 151,000 houses for the most vulnerable families in response to the damages brought by numerous typhoons since Sen. Dick Gordon held the position as Chairman and CEO of the humanitarian organization.
Aside from the full-shelter assistance program, PRC also distributes cash assistance for shelter repair, corrugated galvanized irons (CGI) sheets, and shelter repair tool kits to help typhoon-affected residents in the restoration of their houses.
“Patuloy ang Red Cross sa pagbibigay ng pag-asa sa ating mga kababayan. Dapat sila ay may bubong upang mapanatiling ligtas at makatulog sa gabi lalo na ang mga most vulnerable families sa panahon ng sakuna. WE WANT TO PROTECT THEM,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.
This initiative by the Philippine Red Cross, together with our partner national societies has brought hope to more than 151,000 families and brought dignity to every beneficiary it served.
Recently, PRC held a ground breaking activity to provide full shelter assistance to 167 families in Albay. PRC also delivers humanitarian assistance through various cash assistance, deploying food trucks, and psychosocial support to affected communities.
