Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda announced earlier this week, that 64 partner countries and seven multilateral organisations will be given access to the Foreign Aid Transparency Hub (FAiTH) website content management system, in a bit to better track foreign aid given to victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan last year.


FAiTH was launched in 18 November, 2013 10 days after the Super Typhoon struck central Philippines. The portal aims to provide information on calamity aid and assistance, whether in cash or in kind, received by the Philippines from nations and multilateral organisations, as well as those coursed through our embassies abroad.


The Office of the President will be providing all relevant donor organisations with information on how to log in, manage content, and track their pledges on the FAiTH website through the account details to be distributed by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).


“It will enable donors to input cash and non-cash pledges electronically, with each successful pledge entry generating a unique transaction ID that can be used to monitor submitted information,” Lacierda said.


Information submitted by donors and partners will be authenticated and sent to the DFA before it gets published on FAiTH.


“FAiTH has always been an embodiment of the Aquino administration’s commitment to enhance mechanisms for transparency in government,” Lacierda said.


“This development brings into the process our partners and friends in the international community—a testament to the importance of monitoring and managing aid, and, more importantly, a testimony to the shared responsibility of holding everyone accountable,” he added.
