Victim Registration Blues

Philippine Government dole-out to victims of typhoon Ketsana:

Three (3) cans of sardines
Two kilos (4 pounds) of uncooked rice
Four packages of noodles
One bottle of mineral water...

To be received after hours lining up.

Government now wants to separate child victims of the typhoon from their parents.

????

Contact secgen@gabnet.org to send direct help to the victims.

That is ridiculous, why would they want to separate a child from their parents? Unless proven otherwise, I think that is a horrible idea!

I am praying that there will be further typhoon relief.
