People Surge spokesperson Marissa Cabaljao said the Palo government is trying to hide the lack of action and rehabilitation efforts for Yolanda survivors who are still at the bunkhouses.

“Sa November 8 ang target na forced evacuation sa kanila [Yolanda survivors] dahil dapat nga po ay malinis yung dadaanan ni Santo Papa doon sa Palo mula airport at isa yun Baras Palo na dadaanan papuntang Cathedral, so yung dadaanan ni Papa inaayos nila at sinisikap na tabunan yung totoong sitwasyon ng mga biktima na taliwas sa inaasahan ni Santo Papa na gusto nya makita yung aktuwal na nangyayari, ” Cabaljao said.

“Pero ngayon sinisikap ng lokal na pamahalaan na tabunan po yung nakikitang kahirapan, na nasa mga bunkhouses pa din yung mga biktima ng bagyong Yolanda.”
