TACLOBAN CITY- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) should set a clear guidelines as to who should be given the cash assistance.
This was the unsolicited advice of Tacloban City Councilor Evangeline Esperas amid report that the DSWD would provide financial assistance to survivors of supertyphoon Yolanda.
Earlier, the DSWD had announced that they would provide assistance to Yolanda victims in the amount of P30,000.
The City Social Welfare and Development Office(CSWDO) had said that they already provided their regional office of a list of home owners who are to receive the financial assistance.
However, the CSWDO said that the amount ranged to P10,000 for those whose houses suffered partial damages and P30,000 for those who sustained totally damages.
“The DSWD should not only look into the list of the beneficiaries given by the representatives in every barangay but rather they must conduct survey with their own together with the barangay officials of the place so that they will know who will receive the cash assistance,” Esperas added.
