It's clearer now why power was not restored in Cateel, Davao Oriental more than a year after Typhoon Pablo.
Thousands of typhoon survivors from Barug Katawhan and Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) commemorate the first anniversary of the people’s power during the four straight days of organized barricade and legitimate confiscation, February 25 of last year at the DSWD XI office in Davao City calling for the release of 10,000 sack of rice as promised by Sec. Dinky Soliman during the first barricade at Montevista, Compostela Valley on 2013. According to the group, the US-Aquino administration continues to fail the Filipinos in addressing their need for thorough relief and rehabilitation in times of typhoons and other calamities in the Philippines. Funds and goods, which were intended for the victims, were corrupted and seized by the military. Up to now, victims of Typhoon Pablo are still in distress; hardly coping with the government’s sluggish act upon devastation of lives and livelihood in Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental areas.

I miss everything about him.. I miss our simple conversations, I miss his calls, his text messages-he would always wish me goodluck and success, I miss hugging and kissing him and I miss his smile everytime I arrive at home from work-Manila/Davao. Having him is a gift; losing him is like *** . The pain that typhoon Pablo brought me is really like *** . Having a father like mein Papa is beyond perfection and somehow Pablo took it away from me.. but then, I know everything has a purpose, and praying is all I can do to ease the pain Im experiencing right now... I miss you Papa and Ich Liebe Dich..

DAVAO DEL NORTE, January 30, 2014 (PIA) – The province of Davao del Norte emerged sturdier after successfully getting over the economic and climatic high winds of 2013.    Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario said the province managed to perform well even as it reeled from the effects of Super Typhoon Pablo late in 2012 and the series of low pressure areas in the first quarter of last year.   The Governor recalled the province, which literally wallowed in floodwaters, incurred some P4.6 billion losses in agriculture and infrastructures in the aftermath of Pablo alone.   Yet, del Rosario said external funding, such as those coming from the national government and the official development assistance (ODA), bolstered up the P905-million budget of the province last year bankroll.   He added the economic resilience of the Dabaonons and the private sector also fueled the financial dexterity of the province, bankrolling the P.E.O.P.L.E. development thrust of the governor.   “The economic resili ...

Based on the report from the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, 194 houses were totally washed out by a flashflood that carried huge rocks and debris.   Residents, who are now being housed in their relative’s homes in the area, said they are indeed very thankful for the relief that came.   Aside from food packs provided by the DSWD that contains 6 kilos rice, 6 cans sardines and 10 pieces noodles and coffee, the residents also received non-food aid, courtesy of the PLDT-Smart and Talk and Text foundation that provided laminated sacks, used clothing, ladle, cauldron, and bottled water. ...

It was 3 o'clock in the afternoon, almost dismissal time..Some of my advance and average pupils asking me for a piece of story for them to practice more in reading and comprehension.

(Photos by Danny Castillones Sillada and Eden Jhan Licayan) Inaugurated last January 8, 2014, the Subangán Museum was hailed by Assistant Secretary Arturo Boncato of the Department of Tourism as the “forefront of changing the image of Mindanao to the world.” He said further that “It is very seldom that we see a provincial government spend its time, effort, money, love and tears in coming up of a very important museum program in the Philippines.” The museum features the opulent biodiversity of Mt. Hamiguitan and other magnificent places in Davao Oriental, the cultural and historical heritage of the province, and the frightening vestige of Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) that ravaged the East Coast Davao in 2012. At the atrium of the museum is the skeletal structure of the 7th largest whale on exhibit in the world, and the first and largest in the Philippines. The dead body of the Sperm Whale was found and retrieved along the coastlines of Gov. Generoso and Talicud Island respectively in 2010, and was named ...
What a beautiful spots of San Victor Island of Bagangga Davao Oriental before, but now its already wash out during the typhoon pablo 2012..my memorable moment when i was there together with my friends on yr 2009..
Last 2012, Davao Oriental had faced Typhoon Pablo and I could not abnegate the fact that it caused so much distress in the province. And today, I am again worried about the landfall threat Agaton may bring to my homeland because I know all victims have not moved on still. It hurts to never really know what's coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one, or a cyclone. All we can really do is hope that when it comes, we can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity. Let us just pray.

My dear Colleagues, Once again, the current weather disturbance is causing havoc in the areas devastated by Typhoon Pablo over a year ago. Last January 2012, we were able to extend material assistance to the areas through the relief goods we brought to them. And they are very grateful to UP Mindanao for this. Yesterday, a group of "balyans" (Mandaya priestesses) from Baganga and Caraga Davao Oriental is begging for help from us. Through Prof. Manny Nabayra (Social Sciences Department), the balyans expressed the hardship they are experiencing at the moment especially in Brgy. Kasunugan, upper Baganga River. They said "...kusog kaayo ang ulan...naglandslide na, nangadaut mga tanum, nangaguba ang tulay ug ang Logging Road (connecting their sitio to other areas in Baganga)". They are specifically asking for food and medicine. I would like to take this opportunity to extend this call for help for our friends in Baganga and Caraga. We will appreciate it very much if you can donate food packs (that may con ...
'Agaton' leaves 40 dead in Mindanao death toll from the low pressure area that intensified into tropical depression Agaton has risen to 40. This is the latest figure of the national disaster risk reduction and management council as of 6 p.m., Saturday. The NDRRMC also reports, 65 others were injured and 5 remain missing. More than a 123,000 families are affected and more than 30,000 families are staying in hundreds of evacuation centers. Based on reports received by the NDRRMC, floods caused by continuous rains were worse than typhoon Pablo that hit back in 2012. At the Matnog port in Sorsogon, thousands are also stranded due to very limited boat trips. Since Monday, travel from Luzon to Visayas and Mindanao have been affected by persistent bad weather. Ten flights to various cities in Mindanao were also cancelled due to bad weather.
It's the feast of Señor Santo Niño which we are once again to be celebrated tomorrow, January 19, 2014, here in our place, Xavier Heights Subdivision, Upper Balulang, Cagayan de Oro City.

This commitment which is now of its second time starting last year is a manifestation of thanksgiving, we being a lucky recipient of God's saving help that during the typhoon Pablo, in God's mercy, we were being spared from what I supposed then an impending destruction which I believed to have occurred when a very big branch of the mango tree at our house had fallen down, as it has to separate from the principal branch due to a strong wind of Pablo, right straight to the center of our house through the roof.

Crisis will come. It is one of life's givens. How we face crisis though will determine whether we will come out of it whole or severely crippled. Last night during the newscast i read the news about the devastating floods in Davao Oriental. The same areas, plus more, devastated by typhoon Pablo. Looking at the images, i thought - what can we really do? The images also brought back memories of our own crises. We are no strangers to calamities both manmade and natural. We live in Marikina City, specifically Barangay Malanday. We got hit by Ondoy. Just a few weeks after, we got robbed. Burglars entered our house and stole our laptops and phones and other little things. Good thing we do not really own valuable things like jewelry, but they stole all the gadgets and equipment we use for work. And the worse part? It happened twice. The first time, while we were asleep, the second time while we were shuttling from our house to the hospital because of a medical crisis. The second one happened even while we were s ...

Protest Aquino's antipeople big business projects in calamity areas--CPP Information Bureau Communist Party of the Philippines January 09, 2014 The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) called on the Filipino people, especially the victims of the supertyphoon Yolanda and other calamities last year to expose and wage mass protests against the antipeople programs and big business projects of the Aquino regime misrepresented as "rehabilitation." The CPP issued this statement amid public outcries over the reported overpricing and use of substandard materials in the construction of bunkhouses being built by the Aquino government. The Aquino government has hired private contractors to build at least 222 bunkhouses, the design and specifications of which have been criticized by architects and planners as subhuman and below international standards. Each bunkhouse, costing nearly P1 million each, is to be divided into 12 units of 8 meters square each, described as big enough only for two large tables. The CPP p ...

FINALLY! One of the best thing we could do while we are still here on this planet is to INVEST ON THE LIVES OF OTHERS. It is a sure investment that will be rewarded not only while we're here, but also in eternity. This year, through our partners, we'll be launching our feeding program on Monday, January 13-14 which will benefit the undernourished, malnourished and underweight children in five towns of the Province of Davao Oriental esp. those who live in typhoon Pablo-hit areas. It's quiet a huge project but I know it will make God smile. Jesus said that if we truly love Him, we'll FEED HIS SHEEP. Thanks to all of you who prayed with us and supports us in this great endeavor!

IFRC - World Disaster Report is out Technology and humanitarian action Introduction In 2012, fewer people were reported to have died or been affected as a result of disasters than any other year during the previous decade, according to figures presented in this report. While these numbers are positive news, they also reflect the absence of major events like the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar in 2008 or the 2010 Haiti earthquake. We have learned from these major disasters. At the same time we must continue to improve and innovate to make disaster preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery more effective and accountable. With these objectives in mind, this year’s World Disasters Report focuses on the rapid spread of technologies, especially information and communication technologies, which is changing humanitarian action and humanitarians, too. The changes are most evident in highly technological environments, such as megacities, or when disasters affect critical infrastructures ...

Heroic job SEARCH FOR TRUTH By Ernesto M. Maceda (The Philippine Star) | Updated December 18, 2012 - 12:00am Governor Corazon Malanyaon of Davao Oriental has done a heroic job of attending to the emergency needs of the people of Baganga, Cateel and Boston where 328 died, 1,829 wounded and 22 missing in the three towns.

Spearheaded by the provincial government, the housing units were constructed through Cash-For-Work (CFW) and through Gawad Kalinga’s Bay ...

Typhoon stories breaks my heart, all the time. October 2009, I was one month post-partum (bag-ong pananak kay ate AC), I kept crying as i watch TV updates about the tragedy bought by Typhoon Ondoy (international name Ketsana) to our fellow Filipinos, and also on December 2012's Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) when I was also one month post-partum (with baby Coy). I thought it was so O.A. of me. My motherly instincts, the hormonal explosions and all that post-partum blues caused me to FEEL the agony of those who are severely affected (destroyed houses, missing friends & relatives, carrying own dead children and all) AAAYYY! So tragic. And now, with Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), even at one YEAR post-partum, grabe pa rin emote2 ko. I feel guilty for feelin' very lucky that my family & relatives are not affected, but super naaawa ako sa mga walang makain, ma-inom, matutulugan and sa ma namatayan!! Sorry I can't watch TV news na. Mag PRAY and DONATE na lang ta. These are no longer the freaky maternal hormones that m ...

God isn't in the belfries. One's faith isn't bound up in the crumbling ruins of an old colonial regime. Let them crumble. The Church is in the people whose lives are crushed daily on the streets (earthquake or no), in the fields, in slums, in war zones, workplaces and market stalls, in Bohol, everywhere. Let all the belfries in the world collapse and the bells stop tolling. Maybe only then a broken people that has lost all sense of itself, and has lost all sense of its own history, can see what their faith is truly all about. So no, Danding, God didn't let you or La Salle win, only to allow this tragedy to happen on the very next day. The god you and your kind worship is up in the clouds, detached from reality, and concerns himself with old buildings and the petty concerns of kings. The man nailed on the cross had the cries of that little girl crushed by a falling belfry in mind when he commanded thus: Love, and set the slave free. So before we start agonizing over 300-year-old churches, endangered tarsie ...

Free Kim Gargar now! October 17, 2013 at 5:11am  (A Repost from Catherine Abon)   Kuya Kim is a friend of mine.  He was still in Netherlands when I came to Potsdam for my studies as well so he decided to give me a visit.  Kuya Kim came to Potsdam one beautiful summer of July 2012.  I offered to pick him up in Potsdam main station (Hbf)and he said that I should because he does not want to get lost in Potsdam. I was giddy with excitement that when I saw him in Hbf I called to him "Kuya Kiiimmm!!" as I fling my arms around to give him a tight embrace.  He met me with his signature cheerful smile- a smile that is fulfilled with a graceful squinting of the eyes that will never fail to make you smile in return.   He then started complaining about the heat and how much he had sweated. And I blamed it to the polo shirt he is wearing and I contested that he was not sweating, he was raining.  I rarely see Kuya Kim dress in formal clothes like that. He is usually in his plain shirt particularly those with ca ...
MATI CITY, Davao Oriental(Oct. 16)— The provincial government of Davao Oriental held a special tribute to farmers’ and fisherfolks’ huge contributions in providing food security and economic upturn in the province was held October 10 at the Provincial Capitol , which saw the attendance of farmers and fisherfolk from across the province.   An annual celebration which was started in 2011, the Farmers and Fisherfolk’s Day, according to Provincial Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon reminded everyone at the event the importance the agriculture sector play in the development of the province. “No matter what ranks we have in society, our survival depends on the farmers and fisherfolk who feed us,” she said.   She further said that the annual celebration will give more attention to the farmers and fisherfolk they so deserve.   During the occasion, awards and citations were given to outstanding project cooperators under different agriculture programs. “This is a testament of your good performance and h ...

Davao Typhoon Pablo was the worst disaster in 100years in the province. Zamboanga Conflict & Floods.Typhoon Maring. Santi.Bohol Earthquake.
Last December, days before Super Typhoon Pablo hit the Philippines, all the provinces in his possible path were forewarned to take the necessary steps to save life and property. Filipinos that we are, everybody prayed that God would spare us the destruction. Sadly, it was Davao Oriental that received the brunt of Pablo's fury.the devastation and death was nightmarish! Then came the flood of senseless postings here in FB. One catholic person proudly claimed that his town was spared because of his fervent prayers...because God listened to his prayers. How stupid is that??? Don't you think the catholics in Davao prayed just as fervently? People of any religion or culture will make stupid remarks (even people of your own kind). Instead of wishing them dead, let us remember Jesus when he said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing". I hope I made my point clear to all the haters out there. TOGETHER, let us pick up the pieces and rebuild our beloved country.
“GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH US!”: SANE AND SOBER REFLECTIONS ON THE RECENT EARTHQUAKE CALAMITY By: Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu I am very much appalled of hearing comments on radio, TV and even in social media made by over-enthusiastic religionists and by those “good-and-holy-Pharisees” harping their judgmental and idiotically far-off views that God is truly mad with the world/Philippines due to its sins; and that His divine wrath was the reason why He sent calamities and typhoons as the Philippine’s fair punishment in disobeying Him! Seriously, as believers in God do you really think God to be very petty, onion-skinned and cruelly narcissistic? I honestly throw this question to us who are believers and lovers of God: Do you really believe in God’s divine vindictiveness? Why do some religionists entertain thoughts like these and thereby indirectly accusing God of being cruel and malevolent just to bring home his “holier-than-thou” judgmentalisms? This view is not just medieval but insanely c ...

So sad for Bohol and Cebu...although there were a few casualties, earthquakes leave tremendous damages to all structures and lifetime investments. But remembering Typhoon Pablo, nothing compares to hundreds of lives lost than million folds of destroyed properties...
Calamities are not designed by God,but He allows it to happen to make people call His name and be rememberd...as what I observed when typhoon Pablo destructs many lives in ComVal and Davao Oriental.
MEMORIES.Boljoon's Bermejo Plaza with a beautifully landscaped baywalk near the municipal hall was destroyed by strong waves due to typhoon Pablo last year. The sea wall's were wrecked.This year, Boljoon encountered another trial as the Eli boulevard with its famous winding road is now covered with boulders making it unpassable due to landslide caused by this morning's intensity 7.5 earthquake.
Trivia: Apex Mining Company, Inc. in Masara, Maco, Compostela Valley is continuously paying reparation to the Mansaka indigenous people who are survivors of typhoon Pablo. This is a concrete result of the 3-days barricade of the lumads and peasants led by Indug Kautawan (People Rise Up) which shut down the operations of the mining company. People power in action. The first time in the Philippines.

Free Kim Gargar! Professor Kim Gargar is an environmentalist, scientist, physicist, writer, and activist. This photo was taken on October 3, 2013 at Mati Provincial Hospital where he was confined prior to his transfer to Mati Provincial Jail in Davao Oriental. He was illegally arrested by the military while doing research for a rehabilitation project for the victims of Typhoon Pablo.
Cec Phils : "The military’s claims are all incredible. Kim Gargar is not and has never been a member of the New People’s Army. He planned to work in Davao for six months with the communities in their efforts to rise up from the devastation of Typhoon Pablo. He planned to bring his family to his home province in Iligan this Christmas, before returning to work in Manila."

When Typhoon Pablo (international name Bopha) struck Compostela Valley on December 3, 2012, it ravaged entire villages and destroyed many lives. For 1st Lt. Alex Deazeta, Pablo also killed 7 of his men. Deazeta was the company commander of Charlie Company of the 66th Infantry Battalion (IB) assigned to New Bataan, Compostela Valley when the typhoon struck. On December 4, 2012, Lt. Deazeta and his men gathered residents of Bgy Andap, Compostela Valley into two army trucks for evacuation. Flashfloods overran the soldiers and the villagers as they tried to evacuate to the village's basketball court. The saviors of Bgy Andap suddenly need saving themselves, but there was no help on the way. Had they known in advance that the basketball court was located in a flood prone area, they would've evacuated them to much higher ground. But the team did not have any advance information and had to react quickly. Lt. Deazeta tried to save his men but was dragged 4 kilometers downriver. Still, his team managed to bring so ...

In my hometown, as a teenager, I used to participate in the "Pabulíg." It is an old practice by the natives of my hometown province (Davao Oriental) in which the rice farm owner invites the villagers or the community to participate during the rice harvest and have their own percentage of share (binuligan) from the harvested rice. In essence, pabulíg is a participatory and communal act where the villagers can get their respective shares of harvest from their neighbors’ crops. When the harvest is done, a festivity will follow to be participated by the whole village or community. (Danny Castillones Sillada, Pabulig: A Communal Rice Harvest)
So much to catch up on here since returning to the Philippines less than 2 weeks ago - after being in the U.S. for 4 months, especially since last year and the beginning of this year was already in a state of flux and flurry as we put our regular work on hold to help the survivors of Typhoon Pablo/Bopha. First priority (after assessing the state of things here - the team has done an awesome job in our absence) being given to the interns ( Carlie Weisheit and Clint Kroeker ) who returned with me to work with us for 5 weeks - and preparing for the arrival of a group from Bethesda Mennonite Church (Nebraska) next week. Carlie and Clint are out this week with the Reach Team teaching First Aid to about 50 Muslim people in partnership with the government of Sarangani Prov. Today I've totally drenched (in sweat & dirt) two shirts as I've attacked the kitchen cabinets upstairs here at the Reach Homebase (yesterday it was other closets) trying to bring the accumulated dust and dirt and organization back in check. ...

Junk RPT ordinance, finish new city hall, stamp out summary killings, allow vans - new Tagum Mayor Rellon By Cha Monforte, Rural Urban News Tagum City Mayor-elect vowed that under his incoming watch starting July 1 he would push for the junking of the controversial Real Property (RPT) ordinance, finish the still-unfinished new City Hall, allow the vans to pick up passengers and stamp out summary killings occurring in the city. “Dapat ibasura na na (that should be junked),” he said referring to City Ordinance City Ordinance No. 558, which had become a leading hot issue in the last polls for what critics said as charging too high tax rates which the city’s landowners cannot afford to pay to.
