Donation Call

Recently we were shocked that Marawi was attacked by a militant group. I just woke up that night when I learned about the Marawi Siege. It was terrifying, all the civilian were scared that they just stayed in their houses while this militant group trying to take over the place. Evacuees fled to the nearest province; starving, tired and homeless thus we are knocking in your generous heart to take a look of this donation call.

Earthquake

Earthquake strikes again

Yesterday it hits again in Surigao and the magnitude was intensity 6. I and my sister talked about it this afternoon, and she said that there are many huge fishes docked in shore. They were found in Cagayan, Cebu, and Saranggani.

Before the big earthquake happened in Japan few years ago, there were huge fishes found in the shore and they said that once the huge fishes will come out from the deepest ocean, the tectonic plate is disturbed. And everyone is panicked because some huge fishes are appearing in the shore; they said that a big intensity would happen soon. There is even a post about it saying we need to prepare. And I can’t help but get scared, I just hope that if it will happen, we are complete in the house especially my niece, her office is on the top floor in one of the malls in our place. Lord, have mercy on us; I hope this big one will not occur at all.

An Intensity 7.2 Earthquake Hits Bohol and Cebu

We were so shocked with the news that happened this morning; it was past 8 in the morning when Bohol and Cebu experienced a 7.2 intensity earthquake. The earthquake was so strong that many establishments in Cebu and Bohol were collapsed and even the roads were torn up. Davao City also had the 3 intensity earthquake it is not that strong that I didn’t even feel it maybe I was outside handing the garbage to the garbage collector; I mean I have to walk where the garbage truck is waiting for us. My Facebook was flooded by updates of the status in Cebu and Bohol; many netizens are posting some of the pictures of how devastated the earthquake was. I was surprised that the Sto. Nino Church, one of the oldest churches in the Philippines was also affected. Some parts of the building were damaged caused by the strong earthquake.

This was me when my friend and I went to Cebu years ago, and one of our plans for the day is to visit the Sto. Nino Church, I was even amazed of the beauty of the church when I went there. But due to the earthquake that happened this morning, the oldest Church in the Philippines was collapsed.

This picture is not mine, I just snagged this picture from yahoo (ANC- ABS CBN news) when I was browsing for updates in Cebu and Bohol status. It pained me seeing this picture but even so the faith and belief of the Filipino people will not be shaking, I know GOD will always protect his people.

Philvocs monitored the intensity of each provinces that were also affected:

Intensity VII – Tagbilaran, Bohol
Intensity VI – Inigaran, Negros Occidental
Intensity V – Iloilo City; La Carlota, Negros Occidental
Intensity IV – Masbate City; Roxas City; San Jose, Culasi, Antique; Guihulngan, Negros Oriental
Intensity III – Davao City

Stay safe Filipinos, especially those who resides in Bohol and Cebu, I know we can surpass this all. God Bless Philippines.

Pork Barrel: Spare Our Students

Due to Pork Barrel Scam, my niece Moreen scholarship is at stake, recently she heard that the Dean of their school announced that there will be no scholarship in the next semester. She was worried about this, she is under of a politician scholarship and now they would also include abolishing it.

Some politicians are debating to abolish the Pork Barrel, I don’t understand though because others said that the scholarship will not be affected but how come they seems like including it as well? Dick Gordon is somewhat right to just send the funds for the scholarship to the State Universities and will not be going through to the politicians’ funds however this application is not yet approved. What would happen to those students who are defending of the funds for them to go to college, they will also be freeze?

My niece has all the potentials to become successful; she is actually the hope of her family yet what will happen now? Due to poverty her family could not even support her daily fare and I am the one shouldering it but because I also have 2 daughters that I am supporting plus our daily expenses, how can I support fully to my niece. I hope this will resolve very soon and while they are trying to clean what has been mess up with our government, how I wish they would spare our scholars who are striving so hard to finish college, provide them the funds that they deserved.
