Only P30 million is left in Yolada Funds, saan napunta ang bilyones na Donasyon? says Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo
MANILA, Philippines - Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo said her department has only P30 million left to assist survivors of super typhoon Yolanda.
“Only P30 million is left with DSWD, this is obviously not enough when close to 200,000 still do not have emergency shelter assistance” almost three years since the killer storm struck on November 8, 2013, Taguiwalo said in an interview over radio station dzMM.
“We’re asking if there are other government agencies holding on to Yolanda donations that we can tap to allocate for ESA. Otherwise, what can P30 million do for the 200,000 families?” she added.
Taguiwalo asked for an explanation as to why hundreds of thousands remain deprived of emergency assistance almost three years after Yolanda when the budget left is only 30M.
