NVC serves kids affected by Typhoon Ursula

NVC serves kids affected by Typhoon Ursula

It’s just the third day of the New Year and while many offices are still closed, NVC’s doors opened wide at crack of dawn by the 2nd of January so that our field officer Alyne could go off to serve families devastated by Typhoon Ursula. Of course we wish we were on vacation like many others, but in NVC, we speak the language of love, and love delivers.

Alyne isn’t normally assigned to the kitchen. As an NVC field officer, cooking meals is not a part of her job description. But these kids needed to be fed, and Mingo champorado was the order of the day. So Alyne gamely trooped to the kitchen. It wasn’t a walk in the park because there was neither gas nor electric range for this chef, but there were three large cauldrons. With the help of volunteers from the Archdiocese of Capiz and a lot of prodding from her heart, the cauldrons were empty to the last drop by the end of the day!

Brgy. Agojo, in Panay, Capiz, was among those most badly hit by Typhoon Urusula. We served Mingo Meals to 300 children, who brought take-home packs as well. Thank you, Fr. Mark Granflor of the Social Action Office of the Archdiocese of Capiz and your most efficient volunteers, as well as all the angels who put us together.
