400 more Families
Oh my, oh my, oh my, the rice distribution took sooooo much longer today.
I think DSWD now officially stands for “Dysfunctional Systems Developed while you Wait”. Just making it so much harder for the people and the donors.
Not a shred of organised thought. Not a functional system or structure in sight. Not even one ounce of leadership in anyone present today…and that’s putting it very, very nicely.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being as dysfunctional as you could ever imagine, I would rate DSWD as perhaps 438, that’s a very gracious score. I would actually say that it is impossible to work with them in this type of scenario, in any efficient or effective manner.
It has to been seen to be believed. It’s mind blowing that such large nation wide organization can be so inept in every possible way. They could not be any harder to work with. Admittedly, it is a difficult scenario, but it is being made so much harder by the total lack of organisation ability of those running the distribution.
We arrive on time and had our rice unloaded and ready to go at 9am, that was our scheduled time, we were distributing by 3:30pm.
The only positive thing I can say, is that WE GAVE OUR RICE AWAY AGAIN TODAY TO 400 FAMILIES. With a huge thank you to all the people who donated funds to help with this.
Next week we do it by ourselves, direct to victims in the actual fire area.
People literally fill every stair well in the building, with many people packing up and leaving to go, who knows where.
