December 16, 2021 when Super Typhoon Rai, locally known as Odette smashed and flatten islands of Visayas and Mindanao. It brought heavy rains, violent winds, floods and storm surges. Provinces suffered from the casualties brought by the typhoon, many infrastructures were damage and because of this people were forced to live below bridges and build small tents, temporarily just to have something to protect them from the heat of the sun and keeping them from getting wet. Most victims from the typhoon were Surigaonons, they were struggling to get by every day, food and water were of great problems.
But just when hope was about to fade, a ray of light came shining, because in times of difficulties there will always be someone who is willing to help.
