Although they were also victims, volunteers came to Bohol Wisdom School gymnasium on Christmas Day to speed up the packing of relief goods for typhoon victims in the province.
Nessa Estoque, one of the volunteers, said she was happy she could help.
“Mingtabang ko kay daghan man gud naapektuhan para napud koy in return. Akong mama, kaming tanan buhi,” she said.
Maita Tecson, the provincial social welfare and development officer, said on Saturday that they were preparing 12, 000 family food packs to augment the relief operations in areas affected by Typhoon Odette that ravaged the province last week.
“We are operating non-stop, 24/7,” said Yap.
Governor Art Yap, who personally supervised the relief operation, thanked the volunteers.
On Dec. 16, Super Typhoon Odette, the strongest typhoon to hit the country this year, left thousands of families in Bohol homeless.
