New batch of donations for Yolanda victims destroyed due to Aquino admin's incompetence



LOOK: Donations intended for super typhoon Yolanda victims were destroyed by the Bureau of Customs.

These were donated in 2014 and declared as abandoned in June 2017 since the donors and consignees did not get an exemption from the payment of taxes and duties from the Department of Finance which is needed before the shipment will be released.

Some of the donations from Belgium, U.S., and Norway include used clothing, diapers and medical supplies. Most of them have already expired.
