I'm Dierrek from Tacloban City, Leyte Philippines.
you see, typhoon haiyan has devastated our area 2 years ago and it changed our life entirely. i cannot imagine that in just a couple of minutes, our lives will be different.
yes, we have stood up and we have moved on but we're still struggling. we may have survived the strongest typhoon but the scars will still remain.. in our minds and in our hearts.
they say, "give a man a fish and he will survive a day but then teach a man to fish and he will survive a lifetime". with this, I am humbly asking for you help to be able to stand up on our own and help out my family to be back on track..i am planning to put up a small printing and event coordination and photogrpahy business to help out my family, especially my parents who are in need of medical and some financial help. My dad is now having some health problems particularly his kidneys and needs to have dialysis and a kidney transplant.. as for my mom, she's not getting any younger and i she needs some loving care as well.. i just want to give back to them and give them the life that they deserve. As for me, i am a struggling artist. i have just moved back to tacloban days before haiyan and everything i owned and saved just went to waste when the typhoon struck.
now, i am starting to rebuild our lives..i'm into the field of arts, visual and graphic arts. ive started my business as an event coordinator ,event stylist and as a layout graphic artist as well. im also into photography but i don't have the means to have the gears and gadgets to be a professional photographer and get clients.
i'm taking my chances and i'm asking from your generous heart to help me fund my small business and help me stand on my feet again. not only for me but for my family as well.
the drive to help out others is on my plan as well, right now im also helping out an organization that caters to the needs of young children who doesnt have the means to go to school. i am a volunteer in the foundation and sometimes give out financial help if needed and if i have extra..
your big helo will definitely go a long way not only for me, not only for my family but rest assured that ill also give back to the community...
as what my friend said, God is happy to answer all your prayers, but He is at most happy if you become an answer to someone else's prayer..
Thank you for taking time to read and thank you in advance if you would help out a brother like me..
