Due to the powerful effects of social media, media propaganda cannot anymore cover the widespread poverty in the Philippines. As you travel around, just look beyond street walls, under the bridges and hidden dwellings. This can just be a short walk from where you are. If robbery or other crimes are rampant in one area, this can only mean that many poor and desperate people are living there. This can be clearly seen through calamity aftermath. Know the reasons why Philippines is a disaster prone country:
If there’s no substantial remedies in empowering people who don’t know any better in terms of livelihood, it’s just a matter of time that those who have nothing will loot those who have. Yes, Filipinos are very strong when it comes to trials but this strength can also work against us when we are already competing for the needed resources. It is a must to work not just to eat in a daily basis but to gain financial stability in life!
Philippines is now becoming a calamity-prone country – after series of devastation just happened recently. For sure, like any other governments, the Philippine government also has a comprehensive plan like this one from the United Kingdom for disaster response:
Based on the performance of the government after super typhoon Yolanda, all government agencies are working hard to the brink of breaking down – but the efforts were not felt by many. Why? The devastation was just too much to handle without proper equipment, manpower and strategy. The actions done did not come from an intelligent panel of planners – because they move without thinking in tackling the disaster aftermath. Lots of donations arrive but they are easily hindered by obstructions because they do not have powerful vehicles. Time is of the essence and further delay means lost of lives! Can this be tolerated by Filipinos?
Due to to recent disasters that the Philippines went through like the earthquake of Bohol and Cebu, the government sector in charge of calamity preparedness already made their plans known for the expected coming of typhoon Yolanda to the Eastern Visayas region. Read this news in full:
Immediate evacuation is needed for landslide-prone areas above all. I hope this time, people will see the advantage of preparing for the worst things to happen – rather than just wait and see. Remember that even if you are ready to go, the ones left behind will not have peace of mind knowing that someone, few or many were buried alive.
