• 15,000 relief food packs arrive in Tacloban City


    TACLOBAN CITY: Some 15,000 relief food packs have already arrived in Tacloban City to be distributed to thousands of residents affected by super typhoon Yolanda.

    Starting Monday, relief goods will have to be distributed down at the barangay level, Director Joel Espejo of the DSWD central office said.

    Espejo appealed for everyone to calm down as the government is trying its best to provide for affected families even as he stated that continuous replenishment of relief goods will be done.

    Meanwhile, other areas in Samar provinces affected by the super typhoon are also being taken cared of.

    DSWD director for Eastern Visayas Remia Tapispisan said that as of now they could not determine how many family food packs have been released.

    She added that as soon as goods come in brought by C-130 plane, they are immediately handed to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for distribution.

    Satellite internet is also being provided by the agency to be made available until commercial telecommunication companies restore their operations.

    On Sunday, several personnel from Smart Communications have already arrived in Tacloban to work on their facilities damaged by the typhoon. PNA
