ILOILO CITY: More than a year after super typhoon Yolanda devastated many areas in the Visayas, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Region 6 is yet to release the funds that would have been allotted for victims. Under the DSWD program, P30,000 in cash assistance will be given to each of those whose houses were fully destroyed and P10,000 for those with partially-damaged dwellings. Rosario San Agustin, DSWD Western Visayas representative, said her office is working round-the-clock to procure the necessary documents pertinent to the release of the financial aid, the bulk of which is donated by the international community. She added that the aid will be released to about 3,000 beneficiaries as soon as the DSWD central office gives the go signal. San Agustin appealed for patience, assuring the victims that the DSWD knows fully well their plight.
