P153-M UNICEF's Emergency Unconditional Cash Transfer for Eastern Samar

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is a United Nations (UN) program that provides immediate assistance and long term humanitarian and developmental aid to children and mothers in developing countries. 

UNICEF and our country's Department of Social Welfare and Development, recently joined hand-in-hand to give the most affected region of the recent Super Typhoon Yolanda, notably Eastern Samar, a 153-M cash assistance through an Emergency Unconditional Cash Transfer Program (UCT). This supplemental program is a cash grant for the 4Ps family beneficiaries who were devastated by the Super typhoon Yolanda andi s aimed to assist beneficiaries in their immediate recovery and in sustaining their basic needs.

During the launching of the said program held at Eastern Samar State University in Guiuan, Eastern Samar, it was announced that almost 6,000 DSWD Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries from Eastern Samar especially those from the municipalities of Guiuan, Hernani, Mercedes, Balangkayan, and Salcedo; received an amount of 4,400Php for the month of July and will continue to receive the same amount of monthly cash grant until December of this year. 

Charles Parks of UNICEF said:"The loss of property, savings, and livelihood as a result of Super Typhoon Yolanda, makes it difficult to provide basic necessities for their children. Through the collaboration of UNICEF (UCT) and DSWD (4Ps) we aim to reach more children and families in the most direct way possible, including advancing their rights to fulfill their immediate recovery needs."  

"Hindi po talaga namin alam ang gagawin namin ng dumating at dumaan ang super typhoon na Yolanda sa lugar namin. Nagpapasalamat po kami at nandyan kaagad ang DSWD para tulungan kami at ngayon po sa UNICEF para sa aming pangangailangan na muling nakatayo at makamtan ang inaasam para sa aming mga pamilya," said Mrs. Grace Rapada, 4Ps and UNICEF UCT beneficiary.

Through the UCT program, UNICEF greatly supports our government's Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and its ongoing rehabilitation  efforts for Typhoon Yolanda victims. At the same time, the UCT is an appropriate vehicle in carrying out UNICEF's true purpose to promote the welfare and development of children.
