Day 7 of the Leyte tragedy.
Immediate family safe
Extended family not so sure. with all the things going on in tacloban, capoocan and kananga. haven’t heard from them personally.
Watching the news non-stop for several days. doing Facebook even at work, just to keep in touch,
I’m thinking of all of them wishing I can do something more concrete to let them know we are just here ready to send help. thing is we don’t know how. people are getting terrified of bandits roaming the roads. virtually communication blackout on the leyte island. remittance companies running out of money. Our first wave of targeted relief despite its success is dangerous for my nieces. I will think twice before sending them again, what with other people trying to grab what they bring. If tatay is still alive, I’ll probably be there by day 2. wife is right, I am more help in front of Facebook coordinating our next options and giving updates,
Thank you Wini & Titus for giving me strength. love you and miss you both.
Tonight I feel so helpless, tomorrow, I’ll find the solution.
