The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) released about P73.1 million to nine local government units (LGUs) in Eastern Visayas to continue the implementation of the cash-for-work (CFW) program for typhoon Yolanda’s victims.
According to DSWD Secretary Corazon J. Soliman, the fund is intended for the second wave of CFW program implementation for the nine LGUs.
She said that the LGUs will identify priority activities such as clearing and cleaning roads of debris, rehabilitation of farm-to-market roads, cleaning of coastal areas and dredging of canals.
During the first wave of CFW, the beneficiaries worked mostly in the different relief hubs and seaports.
