Typhoon Haiyan: Your stories
Philippine Government Did It Again
My mom was riding the bus home. She happened to be seated next to a soldier who came from Tacloban. The soldier started telling stories of how he dug up dead bodies, how the whole place felt like a ghost town. And then he started to share how the people in charge there replaced expensive canned goods for cheaper ones. Per say they’ll exchange donated cans of Spam for a can of sardines. They get the huge, high-quality tents donated by different countries for smaller, tattered, old ones.
From selling ‘low cost’ goods to the victims, to practically stealing donations from other people and countries. What more is there to say?
