Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) Aftermath

It was one year ago when i first stepped in the province of Leyte. Tacloban Leyte was 5 hours away from my fathers place which is in Calabayog, Samar.  It was November 2012 to be exact when i landed in the Island of Tacloban Leyte.  I was really amazed on what I've seen! the runway of the airport is just a step away from the sea water! :)

BASILICA OF STO. NINO DE TACLOBAN AFTER THE TYPHOON YOLANDA, NOV. 2013

Those are the photos i've got  when i visited the Tacloban City last year a before and after photos.  This city is nice, people are approachable and friendly.  That's why it really broke my heart when i found out it was ruined by this super typhoon named Yolanda or International name Haiyan.  Many people lost their love ones and their houses and no means of communication for two days. Now survivors from this tragedy were all starving not only in Leyte but also in different parts of the Philippines who were affected by typhoon yolanda such as Samar, Iloilo, Palawan, Cebu, and others.

But thank God the Tacloban airport was partially open to receive goods from different kind of institutions. Help coming out from different countries.  Still Filipino people still manage to smile despite of the tragic happened. I  love the Filipino Spirit, still positive to move forward!

Time to hold on to each other and help

Please continue to pray for the Philippines, we hope we surpass all this tragedy that happened in our country. Let us unite as one and set aside the personal intentions.




BANGON PILIPINAS!
