A “No Build Zone” policy in the Yolanda affected
areas would have prohibited building any structure
within 40 meters from the coastline.

However, Presidential Assistant for Recovery & Re-
habilitation (PARR) Panfilo Lacson says that a blanket
application of the No Build Zone will not address ex-
ceptional circumstances and may be impractical for
certain areas.

PARR: “No Build Zone”
Policy not recommended
in Yolanda-affected areas MANILA -- Four months after Typhoon

Yolanda devastated the
Visayas region, the De-
partment of Social Wel-
fare and Development
(DSWD) continues to
receive financial and in-
kind donations from dif-
ferent countries intended
for the survivors.

On Tuesday, the De-
partment of Foreign Af-
fairs (DFA) turned over
to DSWD the amount of
US$ 1 million from the
Government of Pakistan
as contribution to the
relief efforts for the vic-
tims of ‘Yolanda’, during
a simple ceremony at the
DFA office in Pasay City.

DFA also turned over
the US$300 donation of
Madame Dian Haseng,
spouse of the Indone-
sian Ambassador in Ni-
geria which was coursed
through the Philippine
Embassy in Abuja, Nige-
ria. The donor request-
ed that the amount be
used for the rebuilding
of mosques in Muslim
communities in the areas
affected by ‘Yolanda’.

The model community is situated 18 kilometers

from Tacloban City which is considered “ground zero”
of the destruction brought about by typhoon Yolanda.

Through the housing and livelihood project, the
INC hopes to contribute to the speedy recovery and
rehabilitation of the Yolanda stricken province of
Leyte.

It was learned that the area to be initially developed
for housing, eco-farming and garments factory is 768
hectares which will be expanded in the future.

The INC targets to build 250 quadruplex studio
type homes with one quadruplex having an area of
140 square meters. Each quadruplex will have four
housing units with a lot area of 35 square meters and a
floor area of 22 square meters.

UN commends PH’s commitment
to ‘Build Back Better and Safer’
Sunday 16th of March 2014

MANILA, March 16
-- United Nations Emer-
gency Relief Coordina-
tor Valerie Amos com-
mended the Philippines
in her Briefing for Mem-
ber States in Geneva on
March 7, for the signif-
icant progress after the
devastation wrought by
Typhoon Yolanda (Hai-
yan), which she saw first-
hand during her last visit
to the Philippines.

The Department of
Foreign Affairs in a state-
ment said, Undersecre-
tary General Amos drew
particular attention to
the early signs of recov-
ery which were visible

everywhere, with women
and men continuing to
make every effort to re-
build their lives. She stat-
ed that even as she saw the
progress, much remains
to be done. Millions of
people still require urgent
assistance to rebuild their
lives and livelihoods, and
the need ensure that the
gains attained thus far are
not rolled back.

She stressed that it
is crucial for the inter-
national humanitarian
community to help the
Government and people
build back safer so that
the next massive storm
does not bring the terri-

ble levels of devastation
that we saw with Ty-
phoon Yolanda (Haiyan),
noting that typhoon sea-
son in the Philippines is
about to commence.

Minister Noralyn
Jubaira-Baja, Charge d’
Affaires, a.i., of the Per-
manent Mission of the
Philippines to the Unit-
ed Nations, informed the
Member States and hu-
manitarian donor com-
munity that the Philip-
pines is now in the early
recovery, reconstruction
and development phase,
with a particular focus
on livelihood and agri-
culture. She reiterated

the Philippine Govern-
ment’s commitment to
“Build Back Better” and
safer, and work in close
cooperation with the in-
ternational humanitarian
community and the pri-
vate sector to carry out
the massive rehabilitation
effort in 171 municipali-
ties and cities affected by
Yolanda/Haiyan.

Minister Baja closed
by reiterating the heartfelt
gratitude of the Philippines
and the Filipino people to
the international humani-
tarian community for their
untiring and continued
solidarity in times of great
need. (DFA)

emony will hand over
the equipment and vac-
cines to the Department
of Health as a symbol of
the continuing support
of UNICEF to the Phil-
ippine government and
to Filipino children,
Ms. Francia said.

UNICEF is sup-
porting the Philippine
government to rees-
tablish/strengthen its
national immunization
program and make it
disaster-resilient. Due
to the sensitive nature
of vaccines, support is
needed for the proper
equipment, transport,
storage and distribu-
tion so that children
can get the most benefit
out of these vaccines.

Typhoon Yolan-
da, the most powerful
storm ever recorded,
resulted in the dis-
placement of 4.4 mil-
lion persons including
more than 1.8 million
children. Health care
infrastructures have
been severely damaged
and health workers
were victims as well.
UNICEF reaches out
to the most vulnerable
children in the Philip-
pines especially those
affected by disasters.
In the event of emer-
gencies, immunization
is one of the most suc-
cessful and cost-effec-
tive public health in-
terventions to protect
children from illnesses.

UNICEF, which is
currently supplying
vaccines reaching 36%
of the world’s children,
works with partners
and manufacturers to
obtain vaccines at af-
fordable prices while
maintaining a healthy
market.

UNICEF works with
governments, partners
and communities to
increase demand for
immunization estab-
lish better cold chain
and logistic systems;
design approaches to
“reach the unreached”;
and increase nation-
al ownership for im-
munization. (PIA 8)

The vehicle was re-

Office VIII Director
Nestor B. Ramos (right)
from UNICEF Child Pro-
tection Specialist Galit

DSWD and UNICEF
are partners in the proj-
ect called Family Tracing
and Reunification (FTR),
a system which identifies,
traces, and documents
cases of orphaned chil-
dren in ‘Yolanda’-hit ar-
eas in the region.

FTR enables the shar-
ing of accurate infor-
mation on children who
were orphaned or sepa-
rated from their parents/
relatives so they can be
registered for child care
services.

Dir. Ramos said that
the vehicle will be useful
since they are assisting
the Municipal Social Wel-
fare and Development
Officers (MSWDOs) in
the case management of
some 132 children in-
cluded in the FTR data-
base, as well as 375 chil-
dren in need of special
protection.

Since most of our ve-
hicles were also damaged
by ‘Yolanda’, we need this
to facilitate mobility of
our social workers who
monitor the situation of
children needing special
protection,” Dir. Ramos
said. (DSWD)

Climate change gave us Yolanda, official said
TACLOBAN CITY-

Philippine Climate
Change Commissioner
Naderev “Yeb” Saño
admitted “it’s no
rumor anymore” that
climate change has also
contributed to last year’s
supertyphoon Yolanda
which leveled central
Philippines and killed
over 8,000 persons.

“We have enough
evidence to show that
climate change is already
upon us and the science
is coming very much
clearer into focus. That
when you have warmer
temperature around
the world, like in the

western hemisphere, that
will breed more storms,”
Sano said during a visit to
the city on March 2.

“That’s the bad news.
But then again I would like
to emphasize that disaster
is not only the function
of the hazards. There
are lots of things that I
believe are within our
control including moving
people out of harm’s
way, doing good urban
planning and addressing
poverty in an effective
way then disasters will be
minimized. That is why we
are working with the local
government of Tacloban,
as it is important that

the way Tacloban will
recover becomes the
model for the rest of the
Philippines,” he added.

In terms of its recovery,
the commissioner said
that “Tacloban’s recovery
is inspiring, faster.”

“We as a global
community are working
closely together,” he said,
adding that nine out of
ten disasters are relayed
to climate.

Meantime, Margareta
Wahlstrom, special
representative of UN
Secretary General
Ban Ki-Moon for UN
International Strategy for
Disaster Reduction, also

warned that while the
country is reeling from
its massive rehabilitation
and reconstruction
program, people should
learn “not to forget” the
lessons brought by the
disaster.

“The disaster also
brings opportunity for
the country to work
together and do better.”

Acknowledging that
the country is one of
the most disasters prone
countries in the world,
Wahlstrom emphasized
on the need of good
communication in all
levels in the community.

will be developed with at
least a thousand Typhoon
Yolanda displace families
will be accommodated in
the relocation area.

The New Era reset-
tlement and eco-farm-
ing community will also
have a dried fish plant, a
garments manufacturing
factory and a bottle plant.
All these will provide
livelihood for those who
will be given housing
units.

For the Eco-Farming
project in Sitio New Era,
the following will be the
crops/plants to be culti-
vated in the community:
Imported rice varieties,
Imported fruit bearing
trees, Imported vegeta-
bles and Cultured mush-
rooms.

All the products of the
eco-farming communi-
ties will be for export, or
are of export-quality.

The main beneficiaries
of the housing project,
eco-farming project and
various factories in Sitio
New Era are Iglesia Ni
Cristo brethren affected
by typhoon Yolanda that
pounded Central Phil-
ippines on November 8,
2013.

It was learned that
some 7,000 to 8,000 INC
individual members or
a total number of 2,630
INC families were affect-
ed by Typhoon Yolanda.
Of this number, some
1,500 are from East Leyte,

Iglesia.....
..from page 1

1,000 are from Western
Leyte; and 130 from Sa-
mar.

It was also gathered
that all the construction
workers and other work-
ers helping build the
INC projects in New Era
including the housing
projects, garments facto-
ry, dried fish plant, bottle
plant, and other struc-
tures in the area are pro-
vided an income by the
Iglesia Ni Cristo.

The beneficiaries are
also being given financial
aid while the whole proj-
ect is still being complet-
ed.

INC families affect-
ed by typhoon Yolan-
da, who have either lost
their houses/or their
livelihood, were also giv-
en food aid and cash —
P20,000 or P10,000 each
depending on the dam-
age to their homes — in
the immediate aftermath
of typhoon Yolanda.

Funding for the relief
goods, resettlement proj-
ect and the eco-farming
project, including the
garments factory, dried
fish plant, and bottle plant
came from the funds gen-
erated by the Iglesia Ni
Cristo’s “Worldwide Walk
for those affected by ty-
phoon Yolanda” held on
February 15, 2014 and
from the donations of Ig-
lesia Ni Cristo members
for the “Lingap sa Mam-
amayan” or Aid to Hu-
manity. (PIA 8)

Lacson recommends
distinguishing between
“Safe Zones” and “Unsafe
Zones” and identifying
“No Dwelling Zones”.

This would require
mapping all the ar-
eas and determining
the particular risks for
each area (for example,
inundation or land-
slides). Based on this
determination, PARR
will recommend that
no structures be built
on “Unsafe Zones”. The
local government units
will issue the appropri-
ate ordinance with re-
spect to land use.

For areas considered
“Unsafe” but are need-
ed for livelihood—such
as areas where fisher-
men build structures—
PARR proposes to
consider them as “No
Dwelling Zones”. This
means that structures
necessary for livelihood
or commercial purpos-
es can be allowed on
“No Dwelling Zone”
areas, but residential
structures will be pro-
hibited. PARR adds
that in case of an im-
pending calamity, per-
sons in the “No Dwell-
ing Zones” would be
subject to emergency
evacuation.

Asked whether some

existing structures
would have to be locat-
ed, Lacson says: “There
is no compromise espe-
cially when it comes to
municipal halls and other
government buildings in
Unsafe Zones. How can
the local government re-
spond to calamities when
they are, themselves,
susceptible to high risks
when a calamity strikes?”

Lacson emphasized that
the vision of PARR is to as-
sist the government and the
private sector in “building
back better”. “This would
require building in areas
that would not make struc-
tures at risk of being de-
stroyed, or lives at risk of
being lost.”(PARR)

TYPHOON YOLANDA HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE
JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Plan International is one of the oldest and largest international development agencies in the
world. In the Philippines, Plan works with children and their families in the poor communities
with programs covering education, child and youth engagement, health (including water and
environmental sanitation), and child protection.

Plan International has launched a major disaster response effort to help alleviate the suffering
and preserve human dignity among the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in Leyte, East Sa-
mar and West Samar. For this purpose, Plan International invites highly competent, experienced
and committed professionals to fill the following positions:

Supervising Construction Engineers (4), Based in Tacloban City and Borongan

no more communication
na sa Palo, eh, denied pa
ang Visa ko papunta ng
Spain. Halos umiyak ako
dahil akala ko uuwi na
lang ako ng Palo few days
before going to Spain,”
Fernandez recalled his
experience before he
made it at last for the trip
abroad.

“My individual proj-
ect landed in the semifi-
nals but was not able to
be on the top 3. Individ-
ual project competition
is really tough! But I am
proud because mine is
one of the best projects.
They took video on me
while discussing the proj-
ect. International press
interview me also,” Fer-
nandez narrated.

From the experience,
Fernandez believed that
“Filipino teachers are re-
ally great.”

In 2012, Fernandez

was also recognized as
one of the innovative
teachers in the country
during the 7th Search
for Innovative Teachers
Leadership Award of Mi-
crosoft Partners in Learn-
ing.

“It’s not only on the
use of technology but how
lessons will be delivered
to the students. Filipi-
no teachers are the best
teachers.”

“I can say that I con-
tributed a lot for the suc-
cess of my team. From
the preparation of the
learning activity or lesson
plan, there is no question
for my other members on
the use of technology. Of
course they are advance
and they are really great
in using the technology.
But I worked more on the
content of our learning
activity on how it will be
delivered to the panel of
judges. From the objec-
tives down to the task on
how the students will per-
form,” Fernandez noted.

Personally however
Fernandez said that one
thing he learned from
his teammates and other
participants “is the use of
technology as strategy.”

“There are programs
or ICT tools that I really
don’t know how to use but
they introduce it to me.”

“In the presentation,
I have the longest part. I

discuss how the students
will work in the group and
how they will acquire the
21st century skills, which
I believed got the attention
of the judges and for sure
we earned points from it.”

“During the question
and answer, it was Kurt
Socer who answered the
questions. What I did, I let
showed something on our
presentation that gives us
points again. It was the
details on how students
will have their groupings.
Michio Inaba from Japan
is a SPED teacher and he
is deaf…We used a great
software and Bing Trans-
lator that translated En-
glish to Japanese, this with
the assistance of Tamer
from Egypt while Michio
made a video presentation
on how we collaborate,” ,”
Fernandez said, recalling
his efforts in his team in
order to get the top place.

Now that Fernandez
is heading homeward, he
only got one thing on his
mind: to share his knowl-
edge abroad to his stu-
dents in school.

“With my participa-
tion abroad, I also hoped
to get more assistance for
our school.”

Fernandez’s school to
include his computer lab-
oratory were flattened by
Yolanda November 8 last
year.

Last January, the Chi-

nese Red Cross and the
Philippine Red Cross con-
structed 26 transitional
classrooms in his campus
as all of the school’s class-
rooms were destroyed.

According to Fernan-
dez, his school needs
more help now, from an-
other computer laborato-
ry to library and science
laboratory.

“But I am not stopping.
I love teaching. This award
is for my family, my coun-
try, and above all, my stu-
dents back home”

THAT’S right. Man-
aging people is actually
a matter of loving them,
and loving them all the
way.

While we have to be
most thankful for the tre-
mendous light we have
gained from the many
management theories so
far articulated, we have to
be very clear that no the-
ory takes off the ground,
let alone, flourishes un-
less it is infused with the
living substance of char-
ity.

Managing people, for
sure, is not merely a mat-
ter of techniques, though
techniques and methods,
with their corresponding
tools and instruments,
would always be helpful
and necessary.

In this regard, let’s
hope and pray that the
effort to refine these
techniques and methods,
and to improve the tools
and instruments, would
continue. There’s still a
lot of room for improve-
ment in this area. But we
should avoid falling into
the thinking that man-
agement is just a matter
of playing up these el-
ements in some clever
manner.

The reason is that
people are not mere ob-
jects. They are persons,

them the indispensable
motives that should also
go beyond the material
and worldly values and
standards.

Their innate dignity as
persons and children of
God should not be put in
brackets in any given mo-
ment. They simply cannot
and should not be man-
aged to achieve a purely
economic, social or po-
litical goal. The criteria to
measure their efficiency
and effectiveness should
not just be in purely
worldly terms, like profit,
popularity, etc.

Charity has to be al-
ways the moving spirit
behind every manage-
ment task. It should be
a constant, and not only
to be seen as the princi-
ple or as the result of the
management process. It
should not be regarded
as something that can be
turned on and off in cer-
tain instances. It has to be
on all the time.

No one can actually
ignore the requirement
of charity for long. While
some immediate benefits
can be reaped with a mere
application of techniques
and methods, the same
cannot go far unless the
demands of charity are
truly met.

Thank You Generous Filipinos
and foreigners of course!

t’s a little over a hundred
days of Yolanda’s fury,

a super typhoon that wrecked havoc
to our communities in Leyte and
Samar, that has caused some 6,000
lives lost; hundreds badly hurt and a
good number gone, unseen, unfound;
thousands of dwellings destroyed with
a good number simply washed away.
Grief ruled our hearts, a lot of our
people aimlessly walking around; with
blank faces feeling uncertain what they
will do, where they will go, and how to
live normal lives again.

Like a magic wand that was waved on
air by a Powerful Being, generous people
from all over of different nationalities
and the United Nation worldwide
immediately responded to help. Food,
clothes, blankets, tarpaulins, ready-
made tents as temporary shelters, and
cash dole-outs especially from Tzu Chi,
a Taiwan-based Buddhist foundation
were distributed. It is easy to say
that over a billion dollars have been
poured into our shores. The United
Nations Office for the Coordination of
Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) has
already distributed about $609 million.
Other unnamed sources have silently
come over to help.

The Philippine national leadership
thru President Noynoy Aquino has
poured millions for Leyte-Samar and

other provinces for Yolanda victims and
for rehabilitation of facilities.

Local government units also came
to help specially in the clearing and
cleaning activities to rid the streets of
Tacloban with heaps of smelly garbage.
So much garbage has spread all over
Tacloban and other towns caused by
Yolanda that the clearing is still on-
going as of press time. They came,
complete with equipment, from Makati,
Metro Manila Development Authority,
Calbayog, Baybay City and others.

There were other groups, all over,
unnamed, unnoticed, unannounced
who did their share.

One of these is the JAHs Army,
initiated by a young professional
who did their share in distributing
relief goods to Tacloban’s poor sector.
Certainly, there are many others who
worked in silence.

Lately we read from the Philippine
Daily Inquirer of an agreement inked
by Alfonso G. Sy, President of the
Federation of the Filiino-Chinese
Chamber of Commerce and Industry
(FFCCI) and Leyte Governor Leopoldo
“Mic” Petilla, for the construction of
500 houses and five school buildings in
typhoon ravaged area of Leyte.

From the bottom of their hearts, super
typhoon Yolanda victims thank them
with their prayers for more blessings
from God, and a sincere wish: “May
their tribe increase”

charity in the manage-
ment process will always
find a way to be felt.
That’s the reason why
there are always chang-
es, dialogues, problems
in any management en-
vironment. When badly
understood and handled,
this need can explode
into violence. And even
when well handled, this

Management.... need will always seek bet-
terment.

We need to under-
stand that this charity is
the charity that comes
from God. It should not
just be a product of our
own making, no matter
how well-intentioned.
Through time we have
seen many caricatures of
charity that only have the
name and appearance of
charity but not the sub-
stance. They don’t work
for long.

This is the charity ex-
pressed by Christ who
said, “Love one another
as I have loved you.” It is
the charity that is actu-
ally being given to us in
an abiding way through
his grace. It’s not just an
idea, a policy, a slogan,
or a mere sentiment. It’s a
living and effective thing
that embodies all virtues
proper to us.

It certainly includes
justice, prudence, mercy,
affection, compassion,

creativity, etc. Remember
St. Paul describing it as
something that “bears all
things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures
all things.” (1 Cor 13,7)

We have to disabuse
ourselves from the fear
that charity would just
put us in a weak position
in our management ac-
tivities, or that it would
do away with penal jus-
tice altogether, or that it
would lead us to be easily
taken advantage of, etc.

Charity, in fact, would
prod us to face certain
inconvenient truths and
situations bravely and
would guide us in tack-
ling difficult decisions to
be made.

But it certainly starts
with affection, under-
standing, compassion
and patience. It tells us
to think well of the oth-
ers even if they have
done some wrong for
which justice also has t be
served.

It is the charity of God
who is “slow to anger and
quick to forgive.” It knows
how to reinvent itself as of-
ten as necessary all the way
to death.

This is the charity that
will be sustained by prayer
and sacrifice, by constant
recourse to the sacra-
ments, without neglecting
the human need to attain
the competence we need
in our management activi-
ties, which means continu-
ing study and formation.

Charity makes use of
both human and spiritual
means, human and super-
natural means. Only then
can our management du-
ties be carried out proper-
ly.
