DSWD handa na sa Bagyong Mawar
Nakahanda na ang Department of Social Welfare and Development sa Bagyong Mawar.
Ayon kay DSWD Secretary Rex Gatchalian, naka-preposition na ang mga relief court sa bahagi ng norte sa bansa partikular na sa Ilocos at Cagayan Valley.
“We have prepositioned goods … everywhere in the country,” pahayag ni Gatchalian.
“We have worked with PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical, Astronomical Services Administration) on the modeling that it seems going to, it seems at this point, kasi it’s very early. It’s going to affect Regions II, Regions I, all the way to Batanes,” dagdag ng kalihim.
Nakikipag-ugnayan na aniya ang DSWD sa local government units.
“Right now, ang average kasi nila will be around 30 to 50,000 in those two regions, independently of each other. Naka-preposition na iyon. But we are doubling it up. The goal here is to double it before the end of business tomorrow,” pahayag ni Gatchalian.
Tiniyak naman ni Gatchalian na may sapat na pondo ang DSWD sa pagtugon sa mga kalamidad.
“Remember in the quick response fund natin, part n’ya is preparedness, making sure that handa tayo even before the storms come in. At DSWD, we have a full department doing disaster response,” pahayag ni Gatchalian.
“It’s not a one-shot deal na kapag may bagyo lang na dumadating. All year long, they do these types of stockpiling activities, identifying, and when I was signed up, we were talking about… we are trying to expand our warehouse system. That is what we are utilizing now, the warehouse system — the LGUs or (that of the) national government or (concerned) national government agencies,” pahayag ni Gatchalian.
Ayon sa Pagasa, maaring maging super typhoon ang Bagyong Mawar pagpasok sa bansa sa Biyernes o sa Sabado.
