|My previous white water rafting
adventure in CDO River. Who would’ve
thought that this same river would
wash away hundreds of homes? :(
My heart breaks everytime I see those images from the recent tragedy in North Mindanao because of Typhoon Washi (international name) or as we locally call it, Sendong. I’ve had personal and business travels in those areas and I’ve witnessed Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, and Bukidnon’s beauty. Now, I’ve seen the total opposite. I couldn’t imagine that it would be this devastating.
|Ma. Cristina Falls in Iligan|
After my trips there, it has become one of my favorite places (and people) in the Philippines. And so as Christmas drew near, I gladly did my own share of giving back to the people of CDO and Iligan. Hope it helped in a way. I also would like to share these slides from Ms. Marvin Isidore Macatol from Facebook. I hope we all learn something from it.
Recalling Sendong: Did you really understand what just happened?
