Here’s my pm to somebody I know in dswd. I’m sharing to let people know what’s happening or at least what dswd is doing.
I know you guys are busy but why are things taking so long for relief efforts be felt by the people there?

Hi Tita Isay, it’s okay, I appreciate your concern. On the first day, we are honest that when we got there, wala talagang tao. All our field personnel and even the other agencies, are all based in Tacloban and no one reported to work. Sec Dinky, our Asec, and 2 field staff lang ang nandun. All of our preposition goods were washed away. The closest relief hub was in Cebu but during the first day, wala pang daanan and Cebu is aslo servicing the areas affectd by the earthquake.
Second day we started a more organized relief distribution already but still with limited resources and staff at tuloy tuloy na ang dating ng relief goods. We have established 3 relief hubs (ormoc, tacloban, guian). We are continuously moving relief packs from all DSWD regional offices to Region 8. Mahirap lang kasi malalayo and hindi talaga kaya i-airlift lahat given na limited ang c130 (buti nagpahiram ang US at China at sira mostly ang airport facilities. This is very challenging and we are working 100 percent 24/7 para marating sila agad.
Tulong tulong na ito.
Naabot na namin yung mga pinapakita sa news, yung mga island barangays, we are asking kung pwede food drops.
I’ll post more details but now, we’re having problems moving the relief goods from Manila kasi most of govt trucks are moving relief directly manila to Basey Samar, Leyte, Panay, Antique and Capiz and we can’t wait for it to be airlifted by airlines and c130 kasi kaunti lang ang capacity nun. We have to move at least 50K relief packs a day.
Sorry mahaba yung sagot ko. Sana nasagot ko yung tanong mo.
Other national government agencies will help relief operations management kasi sob rang laki talaga ng demand. We’re opening more relief satellite offices such as ATeneo and La Salle kasi di na rin kaya ng DSWd warehouse lang
