People don’t know how damaged Visayas is. They thought that homes have been destroyed, posts have fallen, and trees have been unrooted. It is more than that. Lives has vanished.

This week has tested the Filipino humankind and their sense of volunteerism. Everyone is making a way or two to help other people who have been victimized by Yolanda. There is Tacloban where people have to shoplift the closed stores just to get anything that they can use. They do not get enough food, and worse, they don’t even get to satisfy their thirst. In Tacloban as well, there were more than 5,000 deaths that have been already recorded and countless are still missing. After the typhoon, corpses are seen hanging on the posts and trees, and many have been found under debris. Tacloban has been crying for help to the extent that no authority can handle them, thus forcing PNoy to call them under Martial Law.

Since I belong to the Western Visayas, I will focus more on my area. Yes, every one of us here suffered Yolanda’s cruelty, but then there are really people whose situations are worse. The Northern Part of Iloilo has been the very target of Yolanda. Yolanda was successful. She hit all of the houses, ruined establishments, knocked out every tree, and she ended number of lives. From Anilao, Banate, Barota Viejo, Sara, Ajuy, Concepcion, Carles, Balsan, Estancia, Capiz, Antique, and Roxas City. Name it, damages have been recorded. Worst thing is that, Antique and Capiz has been very poor. Poor from Media attention and Relief goods. I wonder when will those goods arrive?

As I was browsing on my newsfeed two days ago, I have seen news articles saying that numerous countries have donated millions of pesos to used for Yolanda victims. Thank you all to those countries who indeed help us financially. Thank you so much Denmark, Sweden, Norway, UAE, UK, Canda, Netherlands, Elements of Okinawa, Australia, European Union, Germany, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia.
