Typhoon Yolanda Relief Operations

I am currently watching Kris TV and was very touched by the gesture shown by some volunteers who are currently at ABS-CBN warehouse packing some relief goods for the victims of typhoon Yolanda at Tacloban and Leyte.  The donations that Ms. Kris Aquino was able to secure from her advertisers like San Miguel, Procter and Gamble, Subamarino and CDO was also overwhelming.  These companies have donated thousands of cases of canned goods, bath soaps, mineral water, sacks of rice and other food products for the typhoon victims.  

What happened to the Philippines and to our countrymen at the Visayan region is not a thing to be happy about but the camaraderie, team work and selfless giving that we can witness from our other "kababayans" is truly admirable. 

I've been watching news updates from ABS-CBN daily and so far the aids received by the Philippine government and other NGO's from both local and foreign sources for the restoration and relief efforts at Tacloban and Leyte keeps on increasing and with these aids both in cash and kind, it is expected that the devastated areas will soon be back to normal.

Kudos to some movie personalities who also took part in sharing their blessings through public auctions, garage sale and various forms of fund raising campaigns.  The same can be said to some private individuals who share their time and whatever little thing they have for the victims.

"Every day may not be good but there is something good in everyday!"
