  4. hi. i was at several relief operation centers the past days and i noticed that goods are not evenly distributed in the centers (ex. xavier has too much rice but needs soaps while abscbn has too much soaps but needs rice). as you have more following than i do, i need your help to please share this link so swapping can be done to avoid shortages in the relief packs. thanks!!!
