Published on 24 July 2009

The Philippine government, United Nations World Food Program (UNWFP), and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) are crafting a coordinated relief distribution plan for Maguindanao to address issues such as duplication of relief assistance, service to non-legitimate beneficiaries, and relief diversion to traders. A meeting was held Thursday between the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), UNWFP and ICRC to craft a three-month relief distribution plan for clustered municipalities of affected local government units in Maguindanao.
