- DSWD has introduced a new relief package called the DSWD Family Foodpack
- It is different from the past relief packages because the items are placed inside a box sealed with tape
- The box contains rice, sardines, beef loaf, coffee and cereal energy drinks
After the country was devastated by typhoons Karen and Lawin, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has introduced new kinds of relief packages called the DSWD Family Foodpacks for the victims of the natural disasters.
The biggest difference between the old and new relief packages is that the older type used plastic bags for packaging while the new one uses a box sealed with tape.
"Mga kababayan, ito po ang DSWD Family Foodpack at ang laman (n)ito," DSWD Chief Judy Taguiwalo posted on Facebook.
(My countrymen, this is the DSWD Family Foodpack and its contents.)
According to the DSWD secretary, the package is enough to sustain a family of five for two days. She added that the typhoon victims should make sure that the food pack they will receive are safely sealed by tape.
"Dapat naka-tape po ang kahon pag binigay sa inyo. 6 na kilong bigas, 4 na latang sardinas, 4 na latang carne norte o beef loaf, at 6 na sachet ng kape o cereal energy drink ang nasa loob. Sapat po itong pagkain para sa 2 araw para sa isang pamilyang may 5 na miyembro," Taguiwalo added.
(The box should be sealed with tape when it is given to you. Inside, there are 6 kilos of rice, 4 cans of sardines, 4 cans of carne norte or beef loaf, and 6 sachets of coffee or cereal energy drink. These are enough food for 2 days for one family with 5 members.)
Typhoon Karen devastated the country from October 14 to October 17 while Typhoon Lawin made an impact on October 18, leaving four dead in northern Luzon.
