I remember the sleepless nights volunteering after Typhoon Haiyan hit. It reminded me when I was 4 y.o. and a strong flashflood destroyed my city killing thousands of people. When will the world leaders learn?
January 5, 2015 started with the sun slowly beaming over the mountainous horizon. I woke up to the sight of Allen Port, the ship has finally reached Visayas. After 30 hours of travel by land and 2 hours on the ferry, I knew that my life has reached a full restart. I kept repeating "Tabula Rasa" in my head.
Out of the 400 kids currently under our training program, 23 kids under 15 were chosen to create 2 teams: 1 male and 1 female. It was afternoon of February 20th when we met-up with the kids to start our journey. A lot of them were excited, they have never travelled out of their city.
