There’s no one that I know of who did not do any helping for such highly publicized disasters in the Philippines. Everyone are doing something their own way to alleviate the sufferings of others but this is not enough. Despite the rising GDP statistics, the smell and sights of poverty are hard to ignore. If you haven’t noticed, click into Leoniza Morales’ Poverty Matters blog. As we all know, most of us can only afford to spare some relief donations or temporary solutions to the immediate problems. It was a blessing knowing what other sectors are doing to hopefully formulate a long-term solution to poverty. Read this:

Success is for those who want it most

By: Joey Concepcion 

Christmas is fast approaching, and in a few days this year will end.  I must say that contrary to earlier expectations, it has been a very difficult year for many of our countrymen especially those hit by quite a number of calamities. While we always try to look at the bright side, it is but a reality to deal with the present challenges and help each other recover from the emotional and physical traumas brought about by these disasters. We see the outpouring of support to those affected and it is like seeing the spirit of Christmas happening a month earlier. http://www.philstar.com/business/2013/12/12/1267001/success-those-who-want-it-most


Based on their example, it will be necessary to allocate a government branch that can organize or empower groups of people to do the same. However, the leadership for this must be delegated to a government servant with ample authority, undisputed brilliance, effective communication skills, good connections to industries and undeniable sense of duty. Somebody who knows better than anyone else in this field and not fueled by political ambitions – because he or she will be leading a crusade to inspire people in poverty that they can get out of it if only they know better! Better in the sense that opportunities await them if only they will take that first step towards self-empowerment with the help of the government.

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

By: http://www.cbsnews.com 

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!
