The group is composed of Hands On Manila volunteers – 17 in all! We thank our donors and supporters who made this trip possible. We thank our partners Mind Your Rights (M.Y. Rights) and the officials of Barangays 67 in Leyte and Amandayehan in Basey. Thanks for the warm reception of Welcome Home Pensione, Potluck Canteen, Village Chefs, Na Ning mobile bar, and Calle Z Cafe.
We are glad to meet volunteers, NGO workers, and journalists along the way, who were equally passionate in helping rebuild Tacloban and Basey. We hope to do another volunteer vacation, especially to areas affected by last year’s disasters. We pray that more people will help the communities in Leyte, Samar and northern Cebu.
