Hagonoy Bulacan, Philippines

The volunteers greeted the locals “Good morning!” (Magandang Umaga!). The ambience was very positive. All locals were eager to receive their bag full of goodies (canned goods, rice, noodles, bottled water, clothes etc).

We were supposed to go last week. But the flood has not subsided yet. We finally were able to reach the school early morning today and immediately started distributing the 250 relief bags. All volunteers moved to their posts and gave the bags to the locals who were on queue. With “bayanihan spirit”, distribution ended efficiently after an hour.

I was able to interview some of them. With teary eyed two of them told me, “Malaking tulong po ito sa amin. Salamat po sa Dios at sa inyo” (This is a big help for us. Thank God and thanks to all of you!).

One kid even shared with me that she was in the same school when the flooding happened. Her mom almost got drowned. She thanked GOD for saving her mother.

Hagonoy is a coastal area in Bulacan who got hit by the massive flooding during the September typhoon Pedring and the alleged water released by Napocor (National Power Corporation).

NOTE: Should you wish to donate on any similar endeavour, you may drop me a line so that I could endorse you to the organized humanitarian Clubs I know of.  Thanks in anticipation! h
