“Left with no shelter, not just houses, but homes they have built for their families, households now painstakingly endeavor to rise from this horrifying nightmare,” the SBMA PRO said.

The fundraising drive is part of the ongoing initiatives of the SBMA to help the Odette survivors in other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao who suffered severely due to the onslaught of the typhoon in December 2021.
