A netizen posted photos of supposed relief operations of the government in Mindanao without media coverage.

However, KAMI learned that not all the photos that the netizen posted were taken from the same relief operation.

In a report by Rappler, netizen Romeo Leaño Samonte II shared the photos on Facebook. The photos were personally taken by another netizen.

“WITHOUT MEDIA COVERAGE, GOVERNMENT DELIVERED IN MINDANAO LAST WEEK. And I am sure, this wasn't the first delivery,” it read in the caption.

According to Rappler, the now-deleted photos were taken from a different relief operation.

The photos were taken by Rappler during the relief operations in Aurora province in October 2015.

Meanwhile, the four photos were taken after an earthquake rocked Mindanao. These photos were provided by DSWD Region XII information officers Hilbert Estacion and Ronald Daria.
