The Japanese government has tapped the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to provide aid to provinces heavily damaged by Typhoon “Odette” (international name: Rai).

Under the initiative, IOM will receive $4.2 million (approximately P215.9 million) to distribute aid, including shelter kits, health clinic support and medical equipment, to 2,420 affected families in Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas and Caraga regions.

The IFRC, on the other hand, will receive $1.83 million to support people affected by the typhoon in Surigao del Norte, Bohol, Southern Leyte and Palawan.

The projects are part of Tokyo’s $13-million (approximately P663 million) emergency grant aid for typhoon humanitarian assistance activities in the country. —Tina G. Santos
