For those who got hit and survived the super typhoons in the Philippines, the least thing they want to receive is a decent meal they could share amongst themselves. Sadly, there have been rumors about the past administrations giving less of what they were supposed to receive. Therefore, for transparency, DSWD Secretary Judy M. Taguiwalo shared on Facebook her photos of how the relief boxes should look like upon receiving.
No more plastic bags. All boxed up and itemized.
As mentioned in her post, all food packs must be sealed and consumable for two days. Each box must contain the following items:
- 6 kilos of rice
- 4 cans of sardines
- 4 cans of either beef loaf or corned beef
- 6 sachets of either coffee or cereal energy drink
Here’s her caption in verbatim:
Mga kababayan, ito po ang DSWD Family Foodpack at ang laman ito. Dapat naka-tape po ang kahon pag binigay sa inyo. 6 na kilong bigas, 4 na latang sardinas, 4 na latang carne norte o beef loaf, at 6 na sachet ng kape o cereal energy drink ang nasa loob. Sapat po itong pagkain para sa 2 araw para sa isang pamilyang may 5 na miyembro. #SerbisyongWalangPuwangSaKatiwalian
Indeed, the change has come. Hopefully, this will sustain even after Duterte’s administration.
