New Year's Eve in the Slums

Its the day before new year. We went to Tacloban to search for perfect case studies.

We returned to "shipwreck city" in Tacloban to explore it further. We spotted a few international aid volunteers also surveying the area, they are here to help asses the damage and what needs to be done to help in the restoration.

To save time, we decided to split into two teams to widen our scope in exploring possible leads in the vicinity, Victor explores the areas with the stranded ships while I went on to explore the makeshift houses near the port area.

A few meters away, I saw a child carrying several pieces of scrap metal,  damaged roof pieces, that were probably ripped apart by the storm's wrath.

I decided to pursue this subject further and followed him around. Victor went back to Palo to cover the other probable case studies there, whilst I spent the new year's eve at this boy's family in their house.

A very modest and simple celebration even tough there were no lights or electricity. The people here welcomed the New Year with fireworks, noise making and great optimism in spite of the tragedy that has befallen them.

I think this is one of my most memorable new year's eve.

  1. 카지노사이트는 오프라인 카지노의 모든 카지노게임을 즐길수 있는 웹사이트를 가리킵니다. 오프라인 카지노의 규모가 엄청나게 커봐야 카지노사이트의 규모를 따라올수는 없을 것입니다. 카지노사이트도 자본금의 규모에 따라 자이가 있겠지만 왠만한 사이트하나가 대규모의 오프라인 카지노에 구비되어있는 카지노게임의 종류보다 많습니다.
