Through its Special Assistance for Recovery and Mitigation (SARA) program, the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) provided financial assistance to typhoon-hit cooperatives in the Philippines.

The initiative, according to the CDA on Monday March 28, aims to provide assistance to micro and small cooperatives affected by Typhoon Odette which devastated the country in December 2021.
