After selling their house in a squatter’s area somewhere at Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City in the hope of raising his two children and an adopted child away from the environment where he used to live, Teody’s dream was shattered in a matter of hours. The house they bought out of his lifetime savings and from the money he loaned in a government financing institution together with all the belongings they acquired through the years out of his meager income vanished before his very eyes.

Teody and his family now temporarily lives at CSC’s dormitory, his second home, without anything but clothes soaked in mud and a grim reminder of the past. This is only one story of the thousands affected by typhoon Ondoy. It will take time before they can rebuild their dreams. They need our help . . .
