BOC-Cebu District Collector Elvira Cruz said the canned goods and medicines are already expired.  The clothes, meanwhile, were not distributed or donated to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) since doing so is prohibited under a memorandum released in 2011 that bans the acceptance of forfeited used clothing.

Donations coming from different countries were being disposed of because some of the relief goods like the imported goods and medicine were already been expired.  The relief goods were donated last January 2014. But 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, it was declared as abandoned in June 2017. Aside from goods and medicine, diapers, clothing and undergarments, and kitchenware were also donated.

 Elvira Cruz, 
BOC-Cebu District Collector, said the canned goods and medicines are already expired.

The clothes were not distributed or donated to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) because it is prohibited under a memorandum released in 2011 that bans the acceptance of forfeited used clothing.

The bureau has not disclosed the value of the destroyed items since the donors or consignees did not file an "import entry" which declares the value of shipped items.

Republic Act No. 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act said that 
the BOC can destroy or condemn harmful and prohibited goods.

As overseas Filipino workers (OFW) working in an unfamiliar territory, we feel comfortable whenever we see a compatriot or a fellow Filipino abroad. In some instances, very unfortunate things happen like getting into a trouble because of a fellow Filipino. The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Consulate General in Saudi Arabia confirmed that an OFW was stabbed and killed by a fellow OFW in Jeddah, KSA.      Ads     Sponsored Links    A Filipino was stabbed and killed by a fellow Filipino in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, according to the confirmation of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).  The victim (name withheld) was a 29-year-old from Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao, who worked as a family driver in Jeddah.   The suspect (name withheld), a 34-year-old from Capiz, also a driver for the same family  The suspect remains under police custody after he was arrested immediately after the incident. The two "allegedly engaged in a fistfight in front of the house of their employer that ended in the victim getting fatally stabbed by his fellow driver." The motive of the stabbing is still unknown.  The Consulate General and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Jeddah will extend full assistance to both Filipinos as well as their families.    The victim is set for a vacation to the Philippines soon but the incident turned out to be unfortunate that he will come home inside a box.  Consul General Edgar Badajos said that the suspect is facing a death sentence as per Saudi Sharia law. However, since they are both Filipinos, it is possible that the victim's family could instead  He assured that they will render assistance to help both OFWs.

More often, families with overseas Filipino workers (OFW) rely on their OFW breadwinner in providing their needs and without doing any efforts to have extra income. They use the money they receive to pay their bills, rents, mortgages, etc. They tend to spend the remittances they receive and wait for the next remittance when the money is over without any savings. This is the reason why no matter how long the OFWs exhaust themselves working overseas, they are still coming home broke and without any savings.  Encouraging our spouse or anyone who is responsible for the remittances you send to save could be a great help and could guarantee a hassle-free retirement, much more if they placed this savings to a profitable investment.      Ads     Sponsored Links    Stick to a budget schedule  Convince your spouse to make a monthly budget and commit to saving a portion of the monthly remittance. They could also spend the remaining part of the budget after setting aside the savings.  No matter how small the savings, it could mean a lot after a period of time you regularly do it.    Use the credit card wisely or do not use it at all  Credit cards could be an advantage when purchasing but it can also lure the holder to spend more. Whenever possible, avoid using credit cards and use cash instead. It would save you from paying extra charges and interests which can really raise your spending.    The best rule should be, do not spend the money you do not have.     Always make a list of important things to buy  Many OFW spouses tend to go on a shopping spree just after receiving the remittance and let their impulses lead in which items they like to buy at the very moment without putting their priorities on the things they really needed.  Encourage them to develop a habit and discipline of making a list of the things they need to prioritize during shopping and strictly follow what is on the list to avoid spending too much on the things that are not really important.    Live a lifestyle that suits your income  Many OFW spouses live like one day millionaire. after claiming the remittances you sent, they will go straight to the mall, eat at the fast-food chain of their choice, go on a shopping spree buying what they want without even thinking if they still have the money to go through the month until the next remittance. If their budget got short, they would borrow money from someone which would cause the next budget to bear the shortage and the cycle goes on.    There's nothing wrong with being generous but not too much  Advise your spouse to exercise caution when giving help to extended families, relatives or friends. There is nothing wrong with extending help but there has to be a limitation. This would avoid them to become dependent on your assistance that they would knock your everytime they need financial help.
