The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Aklan made it clear that they do not give damaged relief goods.
This is amidst circulating news that there had been rice with molds received by residents affected by the typhoon.
According to the DSWD Aklan, their relief rice originates from their Regional Office in the province of Iloilo.
Allegedly, they had not seen damage or molds on the rice that they give to the residents of the province.
The DSWD also gave assurance that they carefully check relief goods before handing them out for the safety of recipients.
The DSWD also said if ever the news that is currently circulating regarding the damaged relief goods is true the goods did not directly come from them.
