Our city was hugely devastated by Typhoon Odette last Dec. 16. And since we are by the sea, our place was badly hit. While our house suffered relatively less damage than most, it still needs repairs due to a neighbor’s roof that fell on ours punching several holes and cutting our electricity line connected to the main post.
3 weeks since and until now, electricity and running water are yet to be restored. As of last update, it might take 8 weeks to 3 months. Prices of basic commodities are also higher (including food and drinking water) and minimal help has been given and they are concentrated on evacuation sites.
This situation has been overwhelming and exhausting especially since our financial resources have also been affected— I’m unable to work on my freelance projects and my sibling’s work days have been lessened. We’re also extending help to my tita’s family who completely lost their home and to several boys with strained family relations who are with us.
I’m humbly asking for help from anyone who has extra to give. It will be of great help for our repairs and expenses. Part of the funds raised will also be for my tita’s family to help them rebuild their house and another part will be for the boys. If you have extra to give, please consider donating to us. Thank you so much in advance to anyone who’ll donate, share, or read this.
