Relief goods rot in Tabaco City

TABACO CITY – The Sangguniang Panlunsod here will review the policy and procedures of the Local Government Unit (LGU) here in connection with the storage and distribution of relief goods before and during times of calamity.

According to reports, at least 21 sacks of rice and several cartons of noodles have started to rot in the stockroom of the City Social Welfare Office (CSWO), due to the failure of the said office to distribute said goods immediately to the victims of typhoon Glenda which devastated the area, last week.

The rice and noodles were allegedly intended to be given to the typhoon victims in the barangays located in the island of San Miguel.

However, the difficulty in transporting the commodities served as the stumbling block for the LGU to conduct the immediate relief operations

CWDO Officer-in-Charge Cristina Bonagua explained that they were ready to respond to the needs of their constituency, except for the fact that they have been confronted with this transportation issue.

Sensing that the relief goods would rot, they aborted their plan to proceed to the island barangays of San Miguel. Instead, they decided to ration the perishable goods to other poor families here.

Meanwhile, the reports gathered by the media say that some beneficiaries complained that the relief goods were no longer fit for human consumption.

This is the reason why the Sangguniang Panlungsod is poised to consider the crafting of new policies that would serve as guidelines in the storage as well as distribution of commodities earmarked for calamities.

A report from Mark Kevin Arroco, a broadcaster from Albay also confirmed this report.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
