Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong warned residents against unscrupulous groups and individuals who are soliciting donations for typhoon victims.
The Baguio politiko said groups and individuals who are soliciting funds or donations must register with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
A solicitation permit is mandatory under Presidential Decree 1564.
Magalong said the city government is watching illicit solicitation of donations.
“We have been monitoring certain individuals and groups engaged in the illicit solicitation of funds and donations for typhoon victims,” he said.
