After months of struggling, this woman from Compostela Valley is back to her former work on a banana plantation. Typhoon Pablo destroyed all banana plantations in this province, leading some companies to pull out completely. Cash-for-Work projects helped rehabilitate plantations so that people can get back on their feet.
Projects are needs-driven. They are initiated by the provincial and municipal governments, together with the provincial social welfare and development office. They are designed with the affected municipalities and local governments, in order to meet the communities’ most urgent needs.
