As the world copes with the initial shock of how the super typhoon Yolanda has devastated, damaged and displaced the people of Leyte and other surrounding provinces, now more than ever, us, Pinoys, living here in the Philippines, should take it upon ourselves to continue helping our kababayan (countrymen) until they have the strength to rise again.
It shouldn’t be a one time giving. Rather it should be something that we should commit to, at least up to the next three years, enough time to see some form of change in the lives and livelihood of those who are still fighting to survive amid the devastation, either by choice or the lack of financial resources for relocation.
It doesn’t matter how much we give, what matters is that we give from our hearts and we do so consistently. Childish as it may seem to some, but I still believe that the God who multiplied the child’s offering of five loaves and two fish as accounted in the four gospels, is raring to bless our gifts of love and sacrifice, in order to let our countrymen know that He hasn’t forgotten them nor has He forsaken them (Hebrews 13:5).
Through several agencies, media organizations and ministries, we can extend our love to the Yolanda Victims in 4 ways.
