“The DSWD had propositioned food packs prior to Nina’s landfall. These food packs are in addition to those which LGUs are supposed to provide from their own calamity funds. We immediately augmented these with additional family food packs after the devastation wrought by Nina. These food packs are with the local government units who are primarily responsible for their distribution. We apologize if there are areas and communities that have not been reached by government assistance. We can help remind the appropriate government officials and units to respond to these needs. Send us a message to ereklamo.dswd.gov.ph” said Sec. Taguiwalo.

Duterte supporter and writer Krizette Laureta Chu lambasted Leni Robredo on the vice president's denunciations.
"Di pa rin ako maka move on na after her romp in NYC, Leni calls the relief efforts "slow." If I were one of the hundreds of relief workers there working over the holidays, spending time with the victims instead of with my fam over Noche Buena, I would be so fucking mad that this bakasyonista had the temerity to criticize for the sake of politicking," said the well-known writer.
She added, "Apart from her inaction over Leyte, this is the only time I am truly, deeply furious over Leni. Mapapatawad ko pa ang hindi nya pag move ng bakasyon, pero yung manglait ka pa na wala ka na ngang ginawa... DI PA RIN AKO MAKA MOVE ON SA KATAKLESAHAN AT KAWALANG RESPETO."
