It’s not for clout! San Fernando Mayor Fermin Mabulo says photos of relief ops necessary for accountability

San Fernando Mayor Fermin Mabulo isn’t after publicity when he takes photos of his efforts to provide assistance to calamity victims.

In a Facebook post, Mabulo explained why this act of documentation was necessary.

It is not for clout or political mileage, but for transparency and accountability, he said.

There is a need to let donors know that the money they donated have been used for its intended purpose and have gone to the people who need it, he said.

Because people know that the funds are used properly, more are encouraged to donate to help the needy, he added.

He’s not doing this for the ‘gram!

“Kailangan ba talaga kuhaan ng picture ang ginagawa natin nanpagtulong sa kapwa nasalanta ng bagyo? Ang sagot ay YES po. Hindi po ito para kami ay sumikat o para magkaroon ng political mileage sa susunod na election kundi para malaman ng ating mga kaibigan na tumutulong at nag donate ng kanilang sariling pera (hindi pera ng gobyerno) at malaman din nila kung kanino napupunta ang itinulong nila. Ito ay bahagi ng ating advocacy para sa Transparency at Accountability. Dahil dito, mas madami na ang nagpapaabot ng tulong. Mas madami pa tayo matutulungan. Salamat po sa inyo,” Mabulo posted.
