By now, many of you know that I love to volunteer in almost anything as long as it will fit my schedule. Last week, my office mates and I joined another sponsored event by our company, this time with Habitat for Humanity Philippines. Our sponsored area was Bistekville in Payatas area. Though we only worked for around 3 hours maximum, it was such a great experience. My respect for carpenters and those people who really work to build houses raised up to 100%. It was not easy, with the scorching heat, dust everywhere, we have to reach our goal. There are people who depend on us and they believe we can help them build their lovely houses. A house that they will soon call home and create wonderful memories with. So we pushed ourselves and good thing, we survived! I have to admit, after 4 rounds of placing gravel to a sandbag… I was tired. What more if I do other stuff like carry cements, mix this and that? My body would surely give up. So to all carpenters, I salute you! 🙂
The world needs some help… for every 5 1/2 minutes!
