We, residents of devastated Bohol are very happy with the arrival of a Philippine Navy ship that recently docked here. The PN ship brought relief goods and other basic needs for us victims. Aside from Navy personnel, soldiers from different units continue in the relief operations and rehabilitation. We admire them, especially the PN men, who could not spend or visit their departed ones on Nov. 1. “Wala silang bakasyon,” but they do not mind because they sincerely want to help others, much more victims of calamities like us.
So much warmth of heart from everyone is pouring in on Bohol, like tourists who take a look at a fault line here. “Tama nga po”, we take opportunity in tragedy and we will recover in no time at all. Tourists continue to come and visit us, to see the ruins, and how we are coping with the tragedy.
We have already received the goods and shared it. We feel we have become one family as we survive in adversity. We are looking forward to a brighter tomorrow, and thank everyone who give help, especially those tireless Navymen and soldiers who sacrifice being away from their families on many occasions to help another in need. THANK YOU!!!!
