This is the true spirit of the Filipinos. See the bayanihan spirit in action.
I’m so proud of my alma mater, Ateneo de Manila for the tremendous work they are doing now.
I just keep thinking of all these plastic bags being used for the relief goods and hope they will be disposed of properly. Otherwise, it will just add to the garbage clogging the drains and the environmental waste. At least SM’s plastic bags are bio-degradable. They start to disintegrate in 3 months if under the sun. If not under direct sunlight it takes a little longer.
These are from Xavier school in Greenhills. Pictures were taken by Diosdado Ng who posted them in facebook.
These wonderful pictures of the efforts being done in my alma mater, ICA, were taken by Debbie Lim-Yulo who sent them to me via mms when I told Kathleen I was doing this entry. Thanks Debbie and Kathleen!! They badly need more products like instant coffee, milk, milo, canned goods and rice. You can deliver them by using gate 3 where cars can go in directly to the covered court.
These pictures were taken by Elisa at SM Marikina on Monday, Sept 28. SM foundation with the help of volunteers from the Belo Medical Group and some ROTC from La Salle repacked food and brought medical supplies to Concepcion, Marikina. We would like to thank Deb and the SM foundation for this exceptional help.
The aftermath viewed from the entrance deck of SM Marikina.
