‘Bayanihan’ Spirit Alive as Everyone Worked to Bring Aid to Remote Areas Hit by ‘Lawin’

Considering that a number of bridges and roads were damaged by Supertyphoon Lawin, there really are still a lot of areas in northern Luzon where relief goods and various assistance have not arrived yet – still, joint forces from various sectors tried their best to overcome the challenges to ensure that help will arrive even to the remote areas!

In photos shared by a social worker from the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Rojohn D. Onangey, people could be seen immersing themselves in the river to form a human chain so that the relief goods and supplies can reach the other side.

The water was chest-deep in many areas yet this did not deter our hardworking volunteers! Kudos to everyone! Onangey identified these volunteers as “Joint forces from PDRRMO Mountain Province, SEGA, BFP, PNP, LGU Sagada, DSWD Mountain Province field workers and civilians.”
