Some excellent work including cash for work to revive community spirit to help rebuild!
The foundations chief executive officer, Alfredo Li, said that before the campaign in Manila, Tzu Chi mobilized volunteers for medical and relief missions right in the calamity areas, particularly in Ormoc and Tacloban City in Leyte province, from Nov. 13 to 16.
We have launched a large-scale relief mission for 10,000 families in Ormoc and also doing a cash-for-work program in Tacloban, Li told the Inquirer.
Michael Siao, who is in charge of the cash-for-work program, said Tzu Chi pays workers P500 each a day to clean up and start repairing their own neighborhoods after the killer storm.
Its not just about putting money in their pockets but reviving the community spirit, Siao said...
