No time for rest. The members of “Joint Task Force Tambayayong II” didn’t waste even a single second to repair devastated shelters and establishments in the affected areas of the typhoon Yolanda.
These soldiers came to the affected areas mainly to help the victims especially in rebuilding not only their shattered homes but also in extending to them the message of hope. This is to restore the bayanihan spirit which was once a trademark and best practice among Filipino values.
The activation of the “Joint Task Force Tambayayong II,” have definitely brought new hopes and a test of faith has been surpassed that despite of what had happened Filipinos will always be firm with their belief to the Almighty. This may seem a normal picture for most of the members of the Armed Forces to initiate this kind of efforts but this one is an exception since these uniformed men have been desolated by their respective duties and responsibilities here in Mindanao and preceded to Visayas without any hesitation or objection in their part just to help fellow needy Filipinos in the place. One sure thing is that the exerted efforts were not wasted. As depicted, they did not only restore shelters but they have also provided primary necessities which are the construction materials to be used in rebuilding as well as in repairing ruined houses.
The Eastern Mindanao Command particularly the 5th Civil Relations Group, CRSAFP has made an initiative to request from partners and stakeholders some assistance which is an urgent need of the victims of the typhoon. They have launched the “Donate Pako at Yero Movement” project which aims to gather basic construction materials for the restorations of wrecked shelters and establishments of the people of Eastern Visayas.
These untiring efforts made by the Armed Forces will surely bring hope and courage that neither calamity nor huge difficulties can stop Filipinos from being an optimistic people that something good is about to happen if only everyone will join hand in hand and together we can rebuild our nation.
