Francisco Arago almost lost everything. His source of income is raising pigs and doing carpentry work but he was barely earning enough. Carpentry work only comes along about every 3 months and pig-raising can be hit or miss. On occasion, when work is scarce and the pig’s weight too low to sell, he asks for food from his siblings.
When #typhoonulyssesPH made landfall in his community in Solana, Cagayan on November 11, 2020, this brought about heavy flooding that destroyed his bed and greatly damaged his home.
To help recover what he lost, Francisco was given 5,200 pesos cash assistance through our Multi-purpose Cash Transfer program. This is part of our Humanitarian Assistance to #TyphoonVamco Affected Communities in Region II, which is supported by EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid – ECHO and co-implemented with Plan International Philippines, CARE Philippines, and ACCORD Incorporated.
