The amount covered financial assistance, cash for work or temporary employment, livelihood assistance, and balik-probinsya or transportation allowance for those who want to return to their homes.

In recent months, however, several incidents have been reported in the news media about the delayed or incomplete distribution of hygiene, family kits, and food packs among beneficiary families.

Ace Centerpoint is a mall based in Koronadal City, South Cotabato that is 283.2-kilometers or nearly seven hours away from Marawi City.

The top three supply contract winners of DSWD-FO XII came from its own area of operations and offices in Koronadal City, even though the bases of these suppliers are located quite a distance away from Marawi itself.

NEARLY EVERY month in the last half of 2017, the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office in Region XII (Central Mindanao) went on a shopping binge and ended up splurging over a billion pesos.

It spent the sum -- courtesy of taxpayers -- on mongo beans, dried fish, canned fruits, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, sanitary napkins, slippers, blankets, malong, mats, mosquito nets, frying pans, and kettles, all via negotiated "emergency cases" and “small value” contracts for supplies, in the name of the families displaced by the siege of the Islamic City of Marawi last year.

A senior ARMM official also told PCIJ that the latest distribution of goods for Marawi's displaced families -- home-based and at emergency centers -- by DSWD-FO XII happened last Jan. Last March 2, DSWD personnel conducted another distribution of goods, but only at the emergency centers, the official said.

The big mystery is why DSWD-FO XII awarded contracts in the hundreds of millions of pesos to malls and store chains with medium-size assets and little or limited financing capacity.
