Faces of nameless people seemed to be gathered together within the church vicinity and at the wet market. They were there for different reasons but for one purpose: to live.
Quiapo Church, Manila. I took this photo the day before I left Philippines from my recent visit. I never thought in a matter of days a super typhoon Yolanda would come and leave an unimaginable havoc to my fellow folks from the Visayas region.
In times like these, aside from in cash and in kind donations – prayers and words of encouragement are what we can extend best to them. While some remote areas are still impassable to bring in relief goods and medicines; while they will be needing the basics – food, shelter and clothing; in the long run I hope there will be groups or organizations who will give counseling, sort of spiritual guidance and support to help build the lives of my fellows get back together again.
