in going around evacuation centers, there is one thing he has noticed.
Despite being displaced from their homes, losing the daily comforts they’ve enjoyed, and facing the health risks from the ash fall, the evacuees or bakwits manage to keep smiling.
You’d never think they are actually going through a lot, he noted. For him, this only underscores the resiliency of Filipinos.
Mayon may continue acting up, but for sure, they will all get through this!
