Ateneo/SLB Task Force Noah: Operation Southern Leyte to shift to Rehabilitation in cooperation with Gawad Kalinga: Leyte
On February 17, 2006, a massive landslide buried the people of Guinsaugon in Southern Leyte under tons of mud, rocks and debris. The more than 1,800 residents who disappeared and are presumed dead comprise almost the entire population of the once peaceful farming village. What is now left of the place is a vast expanse of mud, and a handful of grieving survivors. Nothing much awaits relief efforts.
However, a few thousand residents of neighboring villages, and the few residents of Guinsaugon who survived, remain at risk. Their area has previously been declared a geo-hazard zone. People should not inhabit the place at all.
The thousands displaced do not just need relief -- rice, noodles and sardines - they need rehabilitation -- a more suitable place to live in, and new means of earning a living. They need to find life again.
The Ateneo de Manila University's joint effort with Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan, the Task Force Noah: Operation Southern Leyte is now shifting efforts from immediate relief operations to the longer term rehabilitation of Guinsaugon and the other affected barangays of St. Bernard, Leyte.
This phase will be undertaken in partnership with Gawad: Kalinga, the organization set up by private individuals now known nationally and internationally for its successful efforts in providing housing, livelihood and a new life to thousands of poor Filipinos.
Gawad Kalinga: Leyte is a call to all people of good will and good fortune – to share their blessings to the less fortunate, to be part of their struggle to once again find life.

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.
