The 4th Episode of Greener Pastures Offshore “Sea of Clouds” features our very good Friend Dandoy Tongco. We had the chance to meet him two years ago and he and the other locals kindly showed us what a great place the Philippines is. Meeting his family and community there, our experience has been amazing, and we’ve developed a love for his country that is hard to describe.
On November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) ravaged the central part of the Philippines, affecting an estimated 9.8 million people. At least half of them are children. They urgently need access to safe water, hygiene supplies, food, shelter and a safe environment to recover.
