'Bahay Kubo' for Typhoon Yolanda Survivors Criticized

Netizens criticized the government after it distributed "transitional shelters" for Typhoon Yolanda survivors Friday in Cogon, Eastern Samar.




On Twitter, the Department of Social Welfare and Development said each of the families received a certificate of occupancy of the "temporary shelters" turned over by President Benigno Aquino III.

Of course, beneficiaries of the "transitional shelters" did not complain but on social media it's the other way around.

I cannot imagine where the govt put the $$ milliions dollar donations worldwide?! Even say the victims is like 100million people (exaggerated count) kahit bigyan Ng matatag/durable na bahay isa-isa worth 1M pesos= 100millions pesos ,ang dami pang sObra $ millions pa rin! Pero Ito Lang ang bahay na naipamigay,,grabe Naman , sabihin Ng iba mas buti na rin yan keysa wala ,I would say, they deserve more than that.Buti nlng we donated for typhoon Yolanda victims thru American Red Cross,kc alam namin na talagang 100% Deretso sa mga victims !

Socorro Barrameda Murillo:

You're wasting money why make it temporary shelter when you can have a concrete simple towns homes that will not be blown by just one time storm.

Ronaldo Cruz:

ITS BEEN A YEAR SINCE YOLANDA AND THIS GOVT CAN ONLY OFFER NIPA HUTS?????!!!!Wait for another typhoon and will be easily gone with the wind..its a waste of time and money..and oh transitional?den another budget for d permanent???kung sinasabi ng ilan jan na negatibo ang punahin ang kabagalan na pagkilos ng gobyerno sa mga nasalanta ay papaano kaya kung kayo mismo ang nsa sitwasyon ng mga taong ito..na hngang ngaun ay wala pang official tally count kung ilan ang namatay?..na nabulok ang mga relief goods dahil sa itinago.na hngang ngaun ay nagtitiis sa mga tent?

Alalaanin ntn na pawang mga pagsasaka at pangngisda ang hanapbuhay ng mga tao..hindi lng sila pati knilang kabuhayan at hanapbuhay ay apektado.all of them and theirs have gone to zero.

Kaya kht simpatya lng n maipakita sana sa knila mula sa knilang mga kbabayan ay sapat n sana hindi yung sinisisi pa ng ilan ang knilang pagdurusa.

WALANG MAY GUSTO SA NANGYARI PERO KUNG GINUSTO SANA HINDI LANG BAHAY KUBO ITO.

Ernie Reponte II:

A characteristic of a stupid Filipino is TO BLAME THE GOVERNMENT for whatever happens to his/her life or community. His stupidity makes him decide nothing for his life. Such a very unpleasant culture to deal. My God!!!

Rosela Agravantes Sangria:

Proud pa ang gobyerno na napagpatayo na nila ng nipa hut ang mga taga Samar, samantalang bilyon ang dumating na tulong, yan ba ang pinag iisipan nilang itayo, marami pa ang sa tent nakatira, buti pa ang GMA nakapagbigay na ng concretong pabahay, mahiya nman kyo, donation yang tinatago nyong pera.

Cyrille Tolentino:

Seryoso ba to? Paano kung maulit ulit ang nangyari? Hindi ba dapat masmatibay na bahay ang itinayo para sa kanila? Besides, madami namang fund ang nadonate for their needs.

Sure looks like the icrc homes. Environment friendly. No illegal logs. Coco lumber? Cool. Non toxic drywalls. Will break heavy winds. Renewable bamboo will grow back fast.

For transitioning to where? That is the country's problem. Unless land is provided for them, the problem will remain as jn Cagayan from Sendong, as in Central Mindanao from Pablo, as in Bohol from Earthquake, as in Zamboanga from War.

One GOOD 2 bedroom home with bathroom can be built for 200k pesos.

Rey Tan:

isang daanan lang ng typhoon, wala na naman ang mga ito. maganda siguro mag switch sila ng tirahan for a change, then they will probably realize it.
