Using Cash for Shelter: Project Daijok ("Helping Each Other")

2016 — By Catholic Relief Services

After a major earthquake in the Philippines in October 2013, Catholic Relief Services reached 5,000 families with emergency shelter materials, water and hygiene kits, and emergency latrines. In November 2013, CRS staff conducted a housing and market assessment in three of the worst‑hit municipalities of Bohol province: Antequera, Inabanga and Sagbayan.

Based on identified needs and the local market context—as well as feasibility, protection and security, and beneficiary preferences—CRS chose a cash-based response.
