What seems to be the link between your mayor’s glossy photos with the launch of a seminar for pregnant women? Or will a poster on Nutrition Month and having the mayor’s names in bold and big letters make the celebration more meaningful to the people?

Why damage a good road only to repair it?

THIS WAS THE QUESTION of Allan Amistoso, reporter of humanitarian radio station  Radyo Abante in Tacloban City and member of the CANA-supported citizen action group Buliganay Leyte when he sent us these photos.

They were taken in two different portions of Maharlika Highway, the city’s main road to Manila: One was in Barangay 79 (Marasbaras), still in good condition when local government decided to repair it. The other, in Barangay 74 (Lower Nula Tula), has been damaged and neglected for a long time already.



The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Sub-Engineering District of Tacloban City is in charge of the project worth PhP 13.06 million.
