Snaps of Hope: Typhoon Maring Relief Ops


There are two things that came out of typhoon Maring when it hit the metro: the good and the bad. The bad of course were all the lives, property and resources that Maring washed away, but the good consisted of what came after that.

In the face of devastation, you will always find a little hope. I'm sure that most of every Pinoy kindled that bright flame by paying it forward in their own small way. Our small way of giving back was in the form of a relief operation that the men of the Sangandaan Cultural Center took up in a badly bruised barangay called Brgy. Bagong Silangan in Quezon City.

What follows are camera snaps that desire to document the snippets of life in a dense barangay that was affected by the recent storm.




Thanks to our awesome sponsors, we were able to fill the back of an entire van with relief goods. Thanks Summit Mineral Water, Mega Sardines, Safeguard and Argentina Corned Beef!


After many tiny turns and dubious detours, we make our way into the barangay.


The lines begin to form under the hot sun.



Relief.



Throwing up a prayer to whoever hears it.






At the end of the day, we were greeted with a sign. (See below)
