Barangay San Jose, Borongan City, Eastern Samar
21 December 2014
“Gusto ko nga hindi lang kami ang mga mailigtas, kailangan lahat ng tao kailangan maligtas,” said Felicito Balbin, a volunteer of Barangay San Jose, Borongan City in Eastern Samar.
When Typhoon Ruby was initially forecasted to hit the province, Balbin served as an information officer in his community. “Naisip ko kasi na hindi naman siguro maganda kung pamilya ko lang ang iniisip eh. Kailangan lahat ng mga tao, kailangan maging aware sila,” he said.
Despite his volunteer work, Balbin is grateful that his family was left unharmed by the typhoon.
