Support Ella! DSWD is keeping relief goods for themselves! Greedy bastards!
I got news in plurk about the blogsite above. It was about THIS ARTICLE right here.
Let me quote a few:
I’m asking your help to spread the word. Tulungan po ninyo akong ikalat ito. Beyond this, we should also demand action. I disabled a plugin so you can copy the photos of relief goods rotting in DSWD warehouses. You can link this post to your blogs, facebook, websites etc. You can also email the photos.
Philippine News (US based Philippine newspaper) will use this as its front page story this week. Every Filipino has the right to know where the tons of donations from the UN and other counties go. Kahit po nakakahiya sa mga nag-donate. Kung sa ganitong paraan, matutulungan natin ang mga nasalanta, then by all means, let’s do it.
For those who have the time, please try to volunteer sa DSWD warehouses. Getting in was not easy. A friend had to put in a word for us. Let’s see kung madali nang makapasok sa DSWD warehouse ang mga volunteers.
Please read on and good luck to us.
It tells about the DSWD scam in which thousands upon thousands of relief goods are just waiting to be shipped to people who need help because of both typhoon ondoy and pepeng that recently struck the Philippines. Ella tells about how the goods are as good as rotten if it won’t reach those who actually need them. Ella also claims that there were NO VOLUNTEERS when she got there. Either that or there were really few of them around.
What “volunteers”? Nasaan?
Aside from the 8 of us? Nope, there was nobody there. Bakit kailangan ang scheduling? Feeling hindi ba magkamayaw at nagu-unahan ang mga volunteers?
I know somebody who wanted to volunteer many times. She was always bumped off, laging nirere-schedule kasi “there were too many volunteers” daw. At tuwing Sunday lang daw puwede. What the hell is going on here?
After reading the whole article, in which I found very entertaining and informative, I just had to ask myself “WTF?!” and I totally support her now. It was pretty evident on how inefficient the DSWD was (is). I just hope Ms. Ella here don’t get unwanted attention (or trouble) because of her actions, rather, words about this incident.
A few more quotables:
Nakatambak ang donations ng UNICEF sa warehouse, local and international
Mga banig na dapat ay nahihigaan ng mga nasalanta. Mga imported camp beds na hindi na yata masisilayan ng mga biktima. Mga kumot na hindi naman nakabalot sa katawan nila. At mga pagkaing hindi sumasayad sa sikmura nila.
The relief goods are not going anywhere
We arrived at about 8 am and left by midafternoon and yes, you guessed it right. Kami pa rin ang tao bukod sa isang DSWD employee sa loob ng warehouse maghapon. Walang ibang dumating.
The relief goods are not moving. By the way things look, they are not going anywhere. Hindi maglalakad mag-isa ang mga donations na ito papunta sa mga evacuation centers.
Now ask yourself: who is more credible at this point? The DSWD or a Filipina blogger?
SUPPORT HER NOW! 😀
