After Cynthia Patag mocks Duterte admin due to zero foreign aid to typhoon victims, Sec. Taguiwalo responds in viral post

After Inquirer published an article entitled, “No foreign aid yet for victims of Supertyphoon ‘Lawin’, DSWD Sec. Taguiwalo took to Facebook to clear things.

But wait! Don’t skip to DSWD Secretary Taguiwalo’s post just yet before knowing the reason why the PDI article begs a quick response from the good secretary.

According to the PDI article, “three days after Supertyphoon ‘Lawin’ struck Cagayan, local officials, and residents were left wondering why they haven’t received foreign government assistance as they struggled to cope with the devastation left by one of the strongest storms to smash into the country.”

Romina Marasigan, spokesperson for the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council told the Inquirer ” that the government had not requested help from foreign governments.”

The PDI article inspired Cynthia Patag, a rabid critic of President Duterte grabbed the opportunity to pounce on the administration on Facebook that reads as follows:

Victims are asking why there is no foreign aid. The answer is our government has not asked.

A. Pride?
B. Independent foreign policy?
C. China and Russia not ready to help (no ships, planes, choppers, goods for quick response)?
D. Too busy explaining Duts’ latest bizarre utterances?
In fairness, he did tell foreign donors to take away their aid as Filipinos are willing to suffer.

Let’s go straight to Secretary Taguiwalo’s Facebook post in response to the criticism from the Philippine Daily Inquirer and their legion of followers that no foreign aid yet for the Supertyphoon victims in Northern Luzon days after the typhoon left.

PAKI-SHARE PO.

Mga mahal naming kababayan, kaunting paliwanag po: hindi tayo humihingi ng foreign assistance o donations mula sa ibang bansa para sa Karen o Lawin dahil nakitang may sapat na pondo ang gobyerno at mga ahensya nito para saklolohan ang mamamayang apektado.

Dahil walang katiwalian at transparent ang ating ipinatutupad na proseso, kitang-kita na may pondong sapat na magagamit para sa kagyat na pangangailangan. Nagtutulungan ang mga LGU, members ng private sector, ang taumbayan at ang pambansang gobyerno sa pamumuno ni Pres. Duterte para maibigay ang saklolong tulong para sa ating mga kapatid na nasalanta. Pagsisikapan natin na paghusayin at linisin ang sistema ng relief and assistance dustribution NANG WALANG HALONG PULITIKA. Hindi madali ang pagbabago –mahirap at matagal din ito, pero kung di natin sisimulan ngayon, kailan pa?

Hindi tayo dapat maging pala-asa at pala-hingi sa mga dayuhang gobyerno kung kaya nating tumindig sa sariling paa. Kung sama-sama, lahat makakaya. #KayaNgPilipinas
