Text Messages between me and our Pampanga nanay #PrayforthePhilippines

August 11, 2012

This is Ate Rose. She is one of the nanay’s who is heading our Pampanga community.

I just want to share to you her text messages to me during the recent “habagat” rainfall which traumatized Metro Manila and nearby Luzon province residents.

malayo evac center sa amin. wala pa rin kami relief hanggang ngayon. Nabasa lahat ng sample products namin. chaka umorder man kayo this time wala kami magawa kasi lubog nga kami.

kawawa mga member natin dito, wala ba kayong alam na nabibigay, ang bagal kasi ng dating ng tulong dito sa aming nabaha.

May warning nga kami dito kung gusto na naming lumikas kasi sa kalapit bayan daming namatay, lampas bahay ang tubig. dito sa awa ng Dyos hanggang dibdib at beywang lang pero dami na nagkasakit at dinala sa ospital.

Pls Ms. Anne try nyu itanung kasi karamihan dito ang hanap buhay masasaka lang, construction worker, tric driver pati mga member natin sa waterlily walang hanap buhay lahat.

Sa san agustin daw meron. ayaw ng mga tao kahit sinabing mag ingat kasi magp2wla ng tubig ang anggat diken

Yung 3 member natin dito sa may school sila nag evac, may 20 pamilya sa cover courts, yung iba nagsilikas sa ibang brgy. mga anak ko sinama sa tita nila kaso gusto na bumalikkasi wala din makain doon.

d ako makatulog ang sakit ng ngipin ko pero nagpapasalamat pren ako kasi ngipin lang. 2 pamangkin ko asa ospital may dengue.

For the past few months, majority of our orders were given to our other water hyacinth communities located in Pasig and Rizal. They too were affected  by the recent southwest monsoon but not as bad as our Pampanga community.

Our current orders still cannot help them as much they need to and we need your help.

In the initial stage of our company, it has always been Jacinto & Lirio, our retail brand which utlizes the sheets that we order from them. However we realized that this is not enough. They received trainings for various handicrafts but they do not have access to the market. So we decided to help market their other products as corporate gifts to companies and souvenirs for events. The growth of our company will actually mean increase in livelihood sustainability to these marginalized communities in our country.

Help us scale up so that we can help more. Check out this link for some of the products we can offer you: http://issuu.com/jacintoandlirio/docs/ecoingenuity_corporate_giveaways__no_price_
