A fellow blogger and a friend of mine is actively helping Caritas Manila. In support of their continuous effort to help our fellow Filipinos who were affected by flood, I would like to share with you their call for support to our fellow Filipinos.

The trauma of flood does not just go away that easily. I know it first hand based from first hand experience after flood entered our home then during the Ondoy storm. My family and I decided to move out after that. I still feel agitated when I hear the rain but I'm coping (after meditation classes to help re-program myself from associating rain with floods). I cannot imagine how hard it is for those who've actually lost homes, lost properties and even loved ones. 

Be the change you want to see and one way is to show your support to Caritas Manila.
