So Hopeless

Twice a day, my mother and I had a schedule for video chat using either the skype or YM. I know what's going on with my family and the latest news in my city back home. Today, my mother informed me that a Sendong survivor who lives in tent city committed a suicide and I can only speculate why.

My aunt and her family are Sendong survivors too. They went back to their home only last week. They have been living with my mother for almost two months. I don't want them to live in the evacuation center because the situation is stressful. I helped them with their basic needs hoping that their life will be back to normal. Stress is hard to handle and I do not want my aunt and her family to suffer more.
DSWD gave a card to all the Sendong survivors. My aunt got a card but, whatever assistance entitled to them, they got nothing so far because their card has no number and no signature from the officials. My aunt waited for half day just to get the number stamped on their card.
When the DSWD visited to their home yesterday, they told them she is not entitled to receive anything because their house is already in good shape. My aunt was upset!
The city receives millions of assistance all over the world. My aunt got nothing. I provided a new floor mat, new sala set, new curtain and when DSWD saw that, they refused to help them.
I thought about the man who committed a suicide. His situation must be real hard and hopeless. and I can only sigh.
