Odiongan Mayor Trina Fabic calls on DSWD to implement better aid distribution system

0

Odiongan Mayor Trina Fabic has appealed to the Department of Social Welfare and Development to implement a better system for distributing educational assistance, especially since slots are limited.

In a Facebook post, Fabic said Odiongan was not able to participate in the online registration for the assistance since the link was only given on Friday afternoon, but the distribution was scheduled on Saturday.

She said students and parents started lining up for the aid on Friday evening and many were unable to eat and sleep.

On Saturday, there was trouble as people started jostling each other, while some fainted due to lack of air.

It was difficult to stop people from coming because they were all hoping for assistance, she saod.

The situation was frustrating, Fabic said.

She hopes for a better system in the coming days and asked the DSWD to allow pre-registration and to open more slots so that people would not panic.

She would also write to the DSWD about the matter, she said.

This mess needs to be fixed!

“Panawagan sa DSWD. Sana maisipan ng mas mabuting sistema ang pagbibigay ng Educational Assistance, lalo na at limitado pala ang slots. Hindi nakaabot ang online registration sa amin sa Odiongan dahil kahapon ng hapon lang naglabas ng link, ay ang schedule para sa pagbibigay ay ngayong araw, Aug 27. Kagabi pa lang ay pumila na ang mga estudyante at mga magulang. Marami ang walang tulog, hindi pa nakaka kain dahil binabantayan ang kanilang pwesto sa pila. Ngayong umaga, nagkatulakan na ang higit sa 2,000 na tao, may mga nahimatay na dahil kulang sa hangin. Mahirap pigilan ang tao dahil nagbabakasakali na makakuha ng EA. Nakakafrustrate.

Sana magkaroon ng mas magandang sistema sa mga susunod na araw sa ibang bayan. Makakatulong kung may pre registration para hindi nagkukumpulan ang mga tao ng ganito. At sana madagdagan ang mga slots para hindi nagpapanic ang mga tao at nakikipagsiksikan.

Magsusulat kami sa DSWD para iparating ito,” Fabic posted.
