Ladies & Gentlemen , & to my beloved Hernaninhon.I am posting this message to verify once again about the anomaly & corruption that is happening in my home town of Hernani,Eastern Samar.

HAVEN FOR THE ELDERLY, Tanay, Rizal (written by DSWD CO SMS)– We all dream of a comfortable life when we reach our twilight years. Sadly though, partly due to poverty, there are some older persons who go through this last phase of their lives alone, abandoned by their children and relatives. Good news is, there are facilities that welcome these abandoned seniors, ready to provide the love and care they need. Such is the case of Lolo Nicolas Camposano, 89, from Borongan, Eastern Samar. The Haven for the Elderly, a residential care facility of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in this hilly town has been the home of lolo Nicolas for three years now. In 2005, Lolo Nicolas decided to go to Manila to look for his youngest daughter. Due to fatigue and hunger, he fainted. Fortunately, a good samaritan helped and referred him to Golden Acres in Quezon City, and subsequently he was transferred to Haven for the Elderly in 2010. Lolo Nicolas’ wife passed away a few years ago due to illness ...

“BALUD”: STORM SURGE PHENOMENON EXPLAINED by Manny S.D. Lopez The first land fall of super Typhoon Haiyan was recorded in Guiuan, Eastern Samar in the early hours of November 8, 2013, more than 72-hours after the US-led international Joint Weather Information Service sent warnings and storm updates. Packing category 5 wind speeds of up to 318 kph, it is considered as one of the strongest tropical cyclones that hit land in many decades. The impact of the super typhoon was devastating, causing more than 90% of all houses and buildings destroyed or severely damaged in Guiuan, Eastern Samar and areas along the path of the super typhoon. The casualties in Guiuan as a percentile of the population was lower than Tacloban City or Palo, Leyte, despite experiencing higher wind speeds from the open sea. The deadly storm surge phenomenon associated with high intensity winds that devastated Tacloban City and nearby coastal communities of Leyte causing more than 10,000 deaths was less less severe due to differing g ...

Power interruption in parts of Eastern Samar, Feb 28, 2014. MEDIA ADVISORY: NGCP is working to restore power (cont)
Completion of Albuera-Burauen Road resumes on 2013 Ormoc City – Work on the long-awaited Albuera-Burauen Road, started during Arroyo’s time but barely touched on the Albuera side for two years, will resume this 2013 and is hoped to be finished before the new year ends. This information was confirmed by 4th Leyte Engineering District engineer Lino Gonzales here and 2nd Leyte Engineering District engineer Ma. Margarita Junia. Segments of the project worth over P 50-million, however, would be implemented by the region, said Engr. Gonzales. The Albuera-Burauen road is not only envisioned to cut road travel from the region’s capital of Tacloban to Ormoc City, a major gateway to Central Visayas by 18 kilometers, but also seen to improve the peace and order situation in the area which is said to be “NPA influenced”. This December alone, around three encounters between the Army and the communist rebel group have already happened in the area. 2nd LED engineer Ma. Margarita C. Junia said that from their e ...

AirAsia Zest is humbled to support the philanthropic efforts of Jessica Cox, a Filipino-American who despite of her disability of being armless, is a licensed pilot. Jessica is to send aid to the Yolanda victims and show support to the persons with disabilities (PWDs) who survived the typhoon in Eastern Samar, which happens to be the hometown of her mother. Jessica happily greeted the Filipino Allstars today before her flight to Tacloban. She is also one of the firsts to use our Self Check-in service which was launched today. Thank you Jessica for letting us be part of your wonderful endeavor, for serving as an inspiration to all of us and for painting the skies RED with AirAsia Zest. We are with you and your team in sending love, hope & prayers to our brothers and sisters in the Visayas region. :)
Take care ma'am. Thanks for helping those people in Eastern Samar.
Landed Tacloban at daybreak. Now on the road to Eastern Samar. Expecting a 4-hour land trip on a rented van.
OVERDUE UPDATE! I wanted to take a moment to do 4 things. 1st. We wanted to show people what we have done so far with sending things to those in need in Eastern Samar. These boxes were sent as soon as we heard it was safe and boxes were going to make it and were not being looted. 2nd. To say a big thank you to those who collected, bought clothing and goods for us to send. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL THAT YOU GATHERED! LADIES YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE 3rd. To let people know that we are NOT sending this good out of the money we have raised, that money is reserved for once they are on their feet and need to fill the buildings with supplies. Each box costs $85 to send. 4th. To let everyone know we are still excepting donations. We need toiletries and personal hygiene needs (we love the Dollar Tree for these items), canned goods, backpacks, baseball caps, sandals/flip flops, sheets, towels, lightly used school supplies, small toys like matchbox cars and small stuffed toys, and warmer weather clothing. We coul . ...
Early morning flight to Tacloban today for an Eastern Samar mission of the Jesse Robredo Foundation. With my sister-in-law, Penny Bundoc.
Typhoon Haiyan Updates: - Tons of in-kind donations are still piled, undelivered, in Manila. Reason: Shipper did not follow rules or recipient cannot afford VAT or logistics to deliver cargo to Visayas. - The outpouring of support from overseas Filipinos translated to many tons of the usual: used clothing, canned goods, over the counter meds. The region-centric pattern of giving mostly bypass coordination with DSWD, the NDRCs, and local governments. The Filipinos' mistrust is often founded on bad experiences so they ship to their church or to their families. The greater the population abroad, the more help for the towns. This creates an imbalanced and disproportionate apportionment of aid, with far flung areas and off road populations not getting a share of the aid. - OWI monitors the areas in coordination with other NGOs that have been on the ground since Nov. 9. Our joint survey results lead us to decisions on where to hold our next missions so we all cover different areas. Of all the regions hit by Ha ...
Hi everyone! Its me again... I just want to announce that tomorrow, February 28, 2014, and March 1, 2014, we will be having a garage sale in my parents house at 207 Maria Cristina Street Ayala Alabang Village. The Proceeds of this garage sale will go to the rebuilding (take note: NOT renovation) of a school that has been completely obliterated and levelled to the ground! This school is located in Guiuan, Eastern Samar. The kids are currently having classes in makeshift classrooms from donated tents. The other "building" which seems to partially be standing has a roof made of tarp. So when it rains, the kids still go to class, while having their feet submerged in an inch of water. This is no way for our youth to be learning. All i ask is for some help for this. As i see it there are 2 ways you can help me out: 1. Donate anything you have no need for, and we'll sell it to make money! or 2. passby the house and buy something! OR. 3. If you're still not tired of donating money... you can still do that! :) Ple ...

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) Philippines Fishing and aquaculture Situational overview:ational overview: Overfishing has been a major concern in the Philippines in the past year, specifically in the coastal areas around Panay Island, Leyte and Eastern Samar. According to the Asian Development Bank there has been a drop of 90% in the quantity of marine organisms that can be trawled in some traditional fishing areas of the Philippines. Costal communities engage in aquaculture, especially on Panay Island (e.g. milkfish in ponds or finfish in cages, oyster, crab or shrimp farms, as well as seaweed cultivation). Some fishers use traps, having up to 10 traps per household. Before Typhoon Yolanda there were about 1,500 commercial fishing vessels in the Visayas regions and 150,000 small ‘municipal’ vessels or bancas, of which 50,000 were motorized . The 150,000 small boat fishers are especially economically vulnerable, depending on their daily catch, which is sold immediately, to meet basic living needs (FAO 2013) ...

The Open Heart Foundation Worldwide, Inc. held a back to back relief distribution in the province of Eastern Samar on January 30 and 31, 2014. The activity was spearheaded by the Board of Trustees, the Executive Director and Staff of the Foundation. The beneficiaries of the relief operations are the pupils from three elementary schools in Guiuan, Samar and three elementary schools in Hernani, Samar. They were given bags and assorted school supplies. These are donated by the friends of Atty. Turano in Ireland -the Filipino community, Charlie Easterfield and her artist-friends. Each school municipality (Guiuan and Hernani) were also given modules, courtesy of DepEd, for reproduction to be used by six school beneficiaries.

The Department of Education (DepEd) is continuing efforts to recover and reconstruct school records damaged by super Typhoon Yolanda in affected divisions of Eastern Visayas and Western Visayas. DepEd began the assessment in December 2013 and mapped out a strategy in recovery and reconstruction of select school records given the constraints in the area. “Records that have been partially damaged were digitally captured and sent to division offices. Those that were lost or totally destroyed are being reconstructed using other available documents,” said Rogelio Morales, DepEd Director for Technical Services. In the four divisions of Tacloban City, Eastern Samar, Ormoc City and Leyte alone, records of 78,000 learners in elementary and high school have been affected. The students' permanent school records contained in Form 137 was identified as a priority. In these areas, around 41,627 were deemed intact, 9,669 had partial damage, and 7,297 were lost or totally destroyed. Partially damaged forms ...

SEASONAL CLIMATE OUTLOOK January – June 2014 Overview: El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO)-neutral conditions persisted during the remaining months of 2013 up to December, as reflected by near-average sea surface temperature (SST) across the central and east-central equatorial Pacific (CEEP). Most model forecasts continue to indicate ENSO-neutral condition into early 2014, with an increasing chance towards a warming trend during Northern Hemisphere summer of 2014. January – March 2014 The period is the peak of the Northeast (NE) monsoon season, locally known as “Amihan”. Tropical cyclone activity is however at its minimum. Weather systems that may affect the country are the NE monsoon, tail-end of a cold front, trough of low pressure areas (LPAs), Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), easterlies and one (1) to two (2) tropical cyclones that are likely to develop/enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). Cold surges are expected during the period. For January-February-March season, rainf ...

I am in the process of identifying needed seeds and the best resources for the same also for delivery to the most needy farmers in Eastern Samar. Now, this is my wish ... Could anyone produce a truck or smaller AUVs to take them at some time in the very near future? Alternatively, can anyone help me with the cash to rent another truck to bring them from Paranaque to Borongan and Quinapondan? This is not ranting ... this is wishing and hoping, not for me and us here at the Mary Help of Christians National Shrine, but to those who, months after, are still waiting for help.

Binay, who heads the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), said groundbreaking will be held in eight project sites in Leyte and Eastern Samar this month. “The houses to be constructed by NHA will be permanent homes for the survivors and will be built on permanent relocation sites. The bunkhouses being constructed by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) are temporary shelters,” the housing czar clarified. Binay said that the NHA is currently validating the number of partially and totally damaged houses, checking the number of affected families to be relocated, and identifying and evaluating potential resettlement sites. "The current 60,000 estimate is based on DPWH data and may change after NHA co ...
Another typhoon about to hit Eastern Samar this afternoon! This time it's heading Towards Borongan!!! How Exhausting!
Eastern Samar, although beset by decades of insurgency and presently suffering from the effects of Yolanda’s fury, could still count its blessings.
This is my documentation in Eastern Samar while under the stewardship of then Governor Ben P. Evardone.
The Israeli Relief Coalition, a disaster response group from Israel, conducted 14 sessions of Psychosocial Training in Eastern Samar which taught 2,140 individuals how to cope with the devastating effects of disasters. The trainings were attended by church workers, teachers, students, other NGO staff, local government officials, and residents, among others. Please continue to pray for the survivors who are still struggling to rebuild their lives two months after super Typhoon Yolanda had struck the Visayas Region.
It’s been more than two months since super Typhoon Yolanda hit the Leyte and Samar provinces with catastrophic consequences, and while the attention has now rightfully shifted to recovery and rehabilitation, it would appear that there are still some lessons in disaster management that are lost amidst old ways and habits. One of the foremost goals of any post-disaster management efforts is the normalization of the lives of the affected population. Normalization, or going back to how things were, necessitates a range of provisions and infrastructures that admittedly takes time to provide. In a short span of time, however, temporary housing units that are far more durable than tents and makeshift shelters may already be constructed en masse as what the government promised to undertook in December last year, when the DPWH announced that 222 bunkhouses (each consisting of 24 units) would be built in the affected provinces. With 126 of these bunkhouses already standing and with the planned construction of abo ...

Balangiga, Eastern Samar has been greatly ignored by both media and the government. While focus went to Tacloban and Guiuan, these coastal towns were put on the sidelines and the residents greatly ignored. Relief goods are still scarce and people are still hungry. We were the first medical mission to reach Bgy. Sta. Rosa, which could only be reached by by passing through a kilometer of rough roads. You will see here pictures if schools and even a church run down to ruins. Hoping that the pictures tell the story of destruction which will finally make people realize that there are other towns that need equal attention as well. Would be glad if you could repost and share these pictures so others may know.
Wed, 8 Jan 2014 Apologies and thanks. Am back on Yolanda efforts. I will be sending updates again thru FB but less frequent this time. I will be going home again by end this month to remit funds for the motorboat project of Gemma Miralles' group and seek guidance from those on the ground how else we can help in our small ways our kababayans. Sorry to my other FB friends who are not from Eastern Samar, please bear with me as this is the fastest and most economical way of collaborating with our kababayans in Metro Manila and in other countries. We continue to receive cash donations and would like to THANK the following: 1. Yvette Morente Capito and her team from CareOne, Raritan Bay, Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Proceeds of their 2nd Bake Sale of $760. 2. Kristia Solidon-Escona, Sarah Cepeda and Margarita Gillo Amidar and their group, the Boronganons from UAE for the P26,850 donation. We will continue to plan for fund raising efforts and will keep you posted thru my FB account. God bless!
Its the second day of our seminar. I am right. My excitement for the second day didn't fail me. It was really a nice learning experience for me. A lot of things happened in an instant: I was able to share my stories about the road not taken crossroad story. I was happy. They listened to me attentively, sincerely, and emphatically. I supposed to do that kind of listening to my students. Now I realized I was a failure of caring them. I thought I give what is enough. Thats the beauty of this seminar it able to help me to self-reflect of what to do, how to give proper response, and definitely to help and make a difference. I am more excited for tomorrow for we will going to apply the principles of giving stress debriefing (psycho-social care). Hopefully, if the sun will shine a good ray for my actions, I could do it well. Borongan City, Eastern Samar
