Filipinos have been broken yet again – this time not by a typhoon but by a southwest monsoon. I remember the sentiment of a friend from Twitter yesterday, “(Philippines:) Late in tech development, first in the effects of global warming”. I still have high hopes for the Philippines though, this is just a test to the undivided Filipino.
In such a short time, relief operations were assembled. Help came, and is still coming, abundantly from people who care – and believe me when I say there are a lot. I am so proud.
To those who still want to reach out, please, please do so.
Our neighborhood is flooded. Work actually has been resumed today but I can’t go given my situation. However, I still feel so lucky my family is unharmed. God bless the Philippines.
