Last year, we went to Samar to film three families who benefited from UNICEF’s Emergency Unconditional Cash Transfer for Typhoon Yolanda.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has implemented the “Emergency Unconditional Cash Transfer (EUCT) for Typhoon Yolanda affected population in Eastern Samar”.
The engagement aims to help 6,000 household beneficiaries of the 4Ps Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program cope with the severe impact of the typhoon on the livelihood and income of those affected.
The additional cash assistance seeks to respond to the food and non-food requirement of the vulnerable household. The EUCT will cover five municipalities namely Guiuan, Hernani, Mercedes, Balangakayan, and Salcedo. The EUCT is on top of the regular grants received as beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
We shot, edited and produced 3 videos for UNICEF and DSWD.
