Philippine Current Events: DSWD Hoarding Relief Goods and Supplies For Typhoon Victims

A blogger by the name of Ella (ellaganda.com) volunteered to do re-packing of relief goods for the DSWD. Apparently, to her dismay, Ella and her 8 group of friends were the only ones who were volunteering to repack a 1000 sq. m. warehouse full of relief goods.

According to DSWD Secretary Esperanza Cabral, the reason why the DSWD warehouse is still full of unpacked relief goods is because they lack volunteers. However, according to Ella, those who did wish to volunteer were turned away, citing that there were already too many volunteers.

Anyway, there is more to the story about the DSWD hoarding situation, and you can find out more about it from the post in the Multiply site of Gang Badoy, who reposted the story of Ella since her blog was blocked and shut down. COuld it be because she exposed the faults of the DSWD? Maybe.

The same excerpt can also be found on the blog of Jenni Epperson, complete with all the pictures of the stocks they have piled and unused in the DSWD warehouse.

    DSWD is always in need of volunteers. As early as September 27, 2009 the DSWD has already posted in its website the they are looking for volunteers to help them in repacking goods for the victims of ondoy. pls see attached link http://dswd.gov.ph/articledetails.php?id=1496. For those who want to volunteer you can call 8528081 or 09189302356 and look for Ms. Francia Fabian to inquire if the desired time you want to volunteer is still open since there is an influx of volunteers calling since this blog was written. When you get to the warehouse all you have to do is fill up an information sheet and you are ready for your volunteer work.
