Voice of Voiceless Filipinos


welcome

The interview of Anderson Cooper in the Late Show with David Letterman might be taken as criticisms to the Philippine government – but in reality, this is a big breakthrough for those Filipinos who do not have voices – and who are suffering in silence. Watch this:

Yes, it’s better to just help in your own little way – but when you talk about changing the public system to the better, you need to express your sentiments without fear. This is actually what I’m doing through my blogs – but ended up being discouraged by my own relatives. Thanks to this video. It has given me strength to do my part in being the “voice” of the less fortunate!

Tacloban aids are pouring in from around the world but there’s not much evidence that they are received by the the victims. This is an additional grief for the the country. People are getting discouraged from the public system. One can’t imagine why their loved ones are still not eating after few days of abundant donations. Read and watch videos from this link:

Aid operations pick up pace in Philippines

TACLOBAN, PHILIPPINES Relief operations in this typhoon-devastated region of the Philippines picked up pace Wednesday, but still only minimal amounts of water, food and medical supplies were making it to the hardest-hit areas. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57611886/philippines-typhoon-aid-arrives-but-few-in-hard-hit-region-are-getting-it/



No one can control the natural disaster but, sufferings can be alleviated if there’s genuine love for public service. Criticisms to the government may be unfounded but why can’t they facilitate relief efforts faster than the others when they should know their country better? Let’s help in our own little way – and perhaps we can influence the ones in authority!
