"Take me out! I'm rotting here!" --- Relief goods at DSWD?

When typhoon Ondoy and the rest of the storms that followed devastated millions of our Filipino brothers and sisters, the Bayanihan spirit in all of us sparked immediately without any delay. The Bayanihan spirit was super alive and kicking in every form we could imagine.


Blogs and other social netwoking sites like Facebook and Twitter displayed how full-forced our Bayanihan spirit was. A lot of Pinoys, even my friends who are based in the US, tweeted and RT-ed (re-tweeted) the important information about how fellow Filipinos can help.


Donations came in millions. And the world was not deaf to what our country pleaded, foreign countries and citizens showered us with very generous provisions for our victimized brothers and sisters.



An hour ago, I checked my TweetDeck and Twitter via web simultaneously for any update. Lo and behold! These are just three of the tweets I RT-ed, and if someone were to make it a trending topic, I swear it will be number one.


RT @jenniepperson: Good thing I was able to copy-paste 'Blog Ni Ella'. One word: BOOM! Read now na!" http://jenniepperson.com/. GO!

RT @ricoblanconews: can anyone contact the news channels&have them go to dswd warehouse NOW,find out & document what the hell is going on? from TweetDeck

RT @AdeMagnaye: RT: @dementia: Donations coursed through DSWD never got to the victims http://bit.ly/bvNDb #pepeng #ondoy Spread the word! from TweetDeck

What is going on here? What's this all about?


To the good people at DSWD: Please clarify all of this. We need to be enlightened on this very disturbing and quite distressing matter.



I REALLY HOPE RICO BLANCO'S CALL FOR INVESTIGATION AND SCRUTINY WILL BE HEEDED.

With regards this concern, please also visit Manuel L. Quezon, III's site here and Jenny Epperson's here.





I AM ALARMED.
