This year I will spend my Christmas/New Years with the people of Barangay Cabacungan who were devastated with the recent Typhoon Tisoy. This storm had infamously threatened the status of the 2019 SEA Games. Thankfully the SEA games was able to proceed, but the people of Northern Samar were not as lucky...
I will fly down to Calbayog on Dec 28th with as much supplies/cash as I can muster and will spend one week helping to rebuild basic relief facilities out of Punta Caba and to families in the nearby area. I plan to stay for one week and fully maximize my time there.
The few donations you give will do plenty for the community. I will continue to post updates and share progress on your contributions.
