giving back

It was my first time to drive up north of Cebu, wifey hesitated since I may not be familiar with the route and more so because I haven't had enough rest. 

To make the long story short, we pushed through as planned. It was the first weekend after super typhoon Yolanda hit the country, so the drive to Bogo saw a long line of trucks, vans and private cars. We had a jeepney full of relief goods we had repacked days before and a sedan with boxes of bottled water in the trunk.

By the time we got to the town of Sogod, the effects of the typhoon was already evident. People line up along the side of the road holding cardboard signs with one common message written on it.
"WE NEED HELP!" 

We had turned over our packed relief goods ready for distribution to the Bogo command center. We entrust that they know the situation of their constituents better than we do, so we did not take it on ourselves to personally distribute the goods.

thanks to the big R for making this relief operations possible

This was my first long drive up north and my first time to do a charitable act of this kind. 
Though tired, the feeling of being able to help and give back is just priceless.

final dose:
we can only do as much but more help is still needed. 
it was our first time but definitely not the last.
