Oriental Mindoro Gov. Bonz Dolor loses nipa hut’s roof during Quinta
Before typhoon Rolly came, Oriental Mindoro had to deal with Quinta, which caused it’s own damage.
Oriental Mindoro Gov. Bonz Dolor lost the roof of his family’s simple seaside hut during Quinta’s passage.
In a Facebook post, Dolor said it has long been his dream to have a simple home by the sea.
He saved for years to have one built.
His family had only enjoyed the hut he had constructed there for a few weeks when it was damaged by Quinta, he said.
He only saw the damage through photos sent him and has yet to return to the area, he said.
But he is not losing hope.
Just like the others whose homes were destroyed, they will rebuild and rise again, he said.
“Bata pa ako pangarap ko nang magkaroon ng simpleng tahanan sa tabing dagat.
Ilang dekada ng pagtatrabaho ang aming ginugol upang maipundar ka.
Hindi kami naghahangad ng marangyang bahay, kundi isang simpleng tahanan na magsisilbing kanlungan sa aming pagtanda.
Ilang linggo pa lamang kaming mag-anak nakakaranas kumain sa iyong hapag, ngunit sa isang iglap ay dagli kang winasak ni Quinta.
Salamat sa mga nagmagandang loob na nagpadala ng mga litratong ito, sapagkat simula noong bumagyo ay di ka pa namin nakikita.
Tulad ng libo-libong pamilyang nasira ang tahanan na tulad mo, BABANGON TAYO!
Tiwala lang…mahabagin ang Diyos!
GOVERNOR BONZ DOLOR,” Dolor posted.
