Report from Filipino Nurses United (FNU) Cebu Chapter
A disaster relief operation for Odette typhoon victims in Cebu was conducted on January 17-21, 2022. This was done to address the survival and immediate needs of the people after the calamity struck.
The beneficiaries of the relief operation were healthcare workers. This is in consideration of their vulnerability as victim-survivors of typhoon Odette while being front liners in this pandemic. Through the distribution of relief packs, that also include protective masks, they are provided temporary ease from their difficult situation.
Yet the efforts are not yet over. More than a thousand health workers in Metro Cebu remain in dire need of assistance. In the rising cases of COVID-19, they need PPEs, hygiene kits, medicines and vitamins, for relief assistance as well. This is to ensure that they are protected from the threats of COVID-19 infection so they can continue to work and provide for their respective families.
