It was in the morning of October 15, 2013 when residents of Central Visayas, particularly Bohol and Cebu, Philippines, were jolted by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. The said earthquake’s epicenter was 3.7 miles Southwest of Sagbayan with a 7.5 mile depth. Bohol and Cebu were greatly affected by the earthquake that even the region’s centuries-old churches crumbled. According to the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC), the earthquake resulted to 222 deaths, 8 missing persons, and 976 injuries.

After three weeks of the devastating quake, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) hit, again, the Visayas region. Although, the eye of the storm did not directly hit the areas primarily affected by the quake, almost 5,000+ was dead and about 40,000 were displaced once again from their temporary shelters. It was on November 7 that Typhoon Yolanda made five landfalls in Eastern Visayas with the city of Tacloban, Leyte taking much of the impact and was completely wiped out. Although the cities affected prepared for the super typhoon with residents living in the coastal areas relocated to evacuation centers, they were simply overwhelmed by the storm surge.

Immediately after the storm, you could see countless of dead bodies strewn on the ground. There was massive destruction everywhere you look, there are injured people walking aimlessly – desperate to find relatives, hungry for food, and confused with how they would survive the aftermath of the super typhoon. The stench of death permeated the city as dead bodies were buried under piles of rubble of what they used to call home. Apart from hunger, thirst, and fatigue, you can see that these people are still at a loss on what will become of their life. What will happen next? How long would they have to stay in evacuation centers and makeshift houses?

There are thousands of families displaced by the typhoon that are now packed like sardines in government-provided evacuation centers, exposed to the dangers of epidemic outbreaks. Some families who no longer fit these temporary shelters opted to build makeshift shelters to get some warmth from the tragedy that befell upon them. There has since been an outpour of help from thousands of people for the short-term needs of the victims of the typhoon; however, there is minimal help for their long-term needs – rebuilding houses and sustaining life after the storm.

I am one of those who were lucky enough to survive the twin tragedies. Unfortunately, I lost everything I worked so hard for. My home was devastated beyond repair and I am left with nothing but the shirt on my back. Yes, I survived the quake and the super typhoon, but more difficult challenges are ahead. I am slowly picking up the pieces and trying to get back on my feet and start life all over, but I need your help.

I am appealing to your kind heart for your donation to help me build my home where I can start anew. Let a few bricks and stones become a glimmer of hope. Help me believe once again in the spirit of life. Help me stand up and take a second chance at life. 

My deepest gratitude.

God Bless You!
