I may have saved a family of seven from super typhoon Yolanda.
My former yaya lives in Romblon with her husband and five children. They were the first thing I remembered when I turned on the TV yesterday and saw that Romblon was being hit by the typhoon.
I texted and hoped for a response.
Sometimes you just need to convince them to leave their worldly possessions.
Later that evening
This yaya, when we were both single, helped me during a very difficult time in my life. She was the sweetest, kindest yaya to me. I’ll never forget that, so I still help her more than 13 years later.
But then I have my limits too, hehe.
I’m not the best Catholic out there so I try to make up for my sins by helping others.
Besides, I feel safer helping directly someone I know, rather than giving to an organization.
