Palace to set up website for typhoon aid monitoring


The government is putting up a website that would show in detail where the donors’ aid for typhoon relief operations in Eastern Visayas went and how it was spent, a Malacañang official said on Friday.

“The President has already given instructions for the creation of a website. Ang gusto po kasi ng Pangulo, makita kung magkano ang dumaan sa gobyerno mismo, how much of the aid has been coursed through agencies,” Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a media briefing.

The public may now monitor where the aid from international and local donors, both in kind and cash, was funneled, Valte said.

“The President wants it uploaded on the website, kung saan nai-funnel ang mga tulong na ito at kung ano na po ang status ng deployment ng aid. A team is already working on that as we speak,” she added.

Valte said that as of Thursday, a total of 35 countries and five international organizations have pledged their assistance in the ongoing relief efforts for victims of super typhoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan). PNA

    Yez, we really need to know where the donations are going; it seems that the newspapers here abroad are fundraising and the question is “Will it reach the endusers?”. Maraming puedeng magsamantala using the Yolanda disaster to collect money.
