Philippines-Relief Goods by DSWD to the Super Typhoon Yolanda Victims Will End on December
The Secretary of DSWD Dinky Soliman announced the distribution of relief goods provided by the government to the Super Typhoon Yolanda victims will end on December 2013. The reason she said is that the government wants the victims to learn how to stand on their own feet. She explained that from providing relief goods, the government now wants to help the victims to find jobs so they could afford to buy what they need which at this time may not be food anymore. She also said that the department has already implemented cash for work program for the surviving victims. However the DSWD will continue to provide relief goods and other basic necessities to the individuals who will not be able to find work or any means of living after the December deadline. The announcement had disgusted numerous victims of the Super Typhoon Yolanda. The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC) said the death toll from Super Typhoon Yolanda stands at 5,420 while 26,615 were injured and 1,613 are still missing.
