The Philippines headlined the whole world, local and foreign media‘s camera were positioned to typhoon Haiyan’s ground zero. News and commentaries about the cries from the hungry and homeless survivors was heartbreaking, it sounded not just the whole archipelago but the entire community around the world that make way for immediate relief and aid. Donations either goods or cash swamped, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and many other countries sent their Arm Forces, warships and helicopters as additional forces for fast recovery and action.
Another in an article written by Antonio Montalvan II of PDI, The sobering reality couldn’t seem to get into the heads of administration officials. As baffling was their seeming ignorance of the breadth and length of destruction. For example, it was media that told us that even some small islands off northern Cebu had been without food and shelter for days. And that no government help had reached them.
The administration, seemed pay its attention much to public criticism, it seemed he does not want to stain his record during his presidency, as what his campaign motto “Tuwid na Daan” says, he will lead us, the whole country for a better Philippines during his term, but now after the deluge of typhoon Haiyan it seems that another big deluge is coming. 1 week after the typhoon striked Samar and Leyte, another 1 week waiting for a plastic bag of relief goods good for 3 days. The total international aid is 10 Billion, we, those who were not affected by the typhoon must guard that money, as in the Philippines, corrupt officials stray in every corner of our government. They don’t care to whom that fund must go, they just care and think of how they have their part on those funds.
Yes, we Filipinos are strong enough to face any kind of disaster, at the end of the day, we will just smile and use what’s there, Yes, it will took much time for these affected cities to recover, but if we will just stand as one nation, guard the fund for their rehabilitation, we could achieve it fast than expected.
