On my last day in Estancia, Iloilo before returning to Australia (April 8, 2014), the kids living in the tent city (emergency shelter post Typhoon Yolanda) were concerned because they were being moved to bunkhouses in another local government Barangay. I had them write down their full names so I could find them when I returned. My friend Matt Kennedy took this video of me seeing the kids and their parents again (May 28, 2014).
These were the sames kids who showered me with balloons and love when I had been sick some months earlier.
If you are wondering what it might be like to live in a bunkhouse, check out the video below.
