It shouldn't be a one time giving. Rather it should be something that we should commit to, at least up to the next three years, enough time to see some form of change in the lives and livelihood of those who are still fighting to survive amid the devastation, either by choice or the lack of financial resources for relocation.
It doesn't matter how much we give, what matters is that we give from our hearts and we do so consistently. Childish as it may seem to some, but I still believe that the God who multiplied the child's offering of five loaves and two fish as accounted in the four gospels, is raring to bless our gifts of love and sacrifice, in order to let our countrymen know that He hasn't forgotten them nor has He forsaken them (Hebrews 13:5).
Through several agencies, media organizations and ministries, we can extend our love to the Yolanda Victims in 4 ways.

Let's continue to fan the flame of devotion for our kababayan (countrymen) in the Visayas region during these difficult times. As our hero Andres Bonifacio said in his heartfelt poem, Pag-ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa:
"Hayo na nga, hayo, kayong nagabuhay
Sa pag-asang lubos ng kaginhawahan
At walang tinamo kundi kapaitan,
Hayo na't ibangon ang naabang bayan!"
