Our government is fucked up and we are doing their job
Sorry to rant here but the Philippine government is fucking up royally. For days after the typhoon hit, we are doin our best to send relief goods and whatever we can to our neighbouring islands. Day and night, relief operation centers are packed with people helping. There are thousands of helping hands 24/7. But our beloved politicians are sitting pretty wherever the heck they are and enjoyig whatever the heck they are doing without even trying to frontline relief operations. Some relief packs haven’t even reached the places they’re supposed to be sent. Here in Cebu we are drivin up northto personally distribute goods and making sure they get there safe withot being hauled away by the government. Keep in mind folks that these relief packs are coming from the pockets of the people.not from the government
I am proud of my fellow Filipinos who are doing the bestthey can to help. I am thankful for those nations who extended their generous hearts. But I am hands down ashamed of our government. Enough said. Now I should go back to volunteer work.
Been m.i.a. because of work (preschool teacher and Korean-English teacher) and lately, withthe tragedy that hit the Philippines from the typhoon Haiyan. So far, we here in Cebu are holding on and helping in every way we can. For the past months we have been hit by a terrible earthquake, the worst typhoon of the century and within a week from that (yesterday) we were greeted with yet another typhoon. There are about 2 more typhoons reportedly recorded to hit our country. I work in the morning and volunteer until late in the evenings, hence no time to get on tumblr.
With what is happening in the Philippines right now, it is true that we have less to give here yet we still give. Even my father’s carpenters in his company willingly give their salary to help those devastated by the typhoon Haiyan. No worries though because my dad does not deduct their salaries. He just lets them assume he did. So yeah :) Long story short…I am back and I need updates with the latest happenings. Totes cannot wait to start spazzing again!
Who here knows where I can download free pdf books? Been trying to find Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire since I cannot buy the book within this week and I am dying to read it already. Just hit my ask. Thanks!
