In the aftermath of the destructive force of Typhoon Egay, the affected communities in Abulug and Pamplona, Cagayan, stand as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. With the dedicated efforts of individuals like Teacher Lina Estanol, a lay worker deeply invested in the well-being of her community, a glimmer of hope shines through the darkest of times.

Teacher Lina, a beacon of support for those affected by the typhoon, has meticulously compiled lists of families who found themselves in the wake of Egay’s wrath. Her comprehensive records showcase the extent of the typhoon’s impact, serving as a stark reminder of both the power of nature and the bonds that tie these communities together.

In Dana Ili, the list of families affected by the typhoon reads like a roll call of courage in the face of adversity. They found themselves navigating the turbulent waters of destruction, their lives forever changed by the tempest’s fury.

Meanwhile, in Pamplona, a different set of families, have also been caught in Typhoon Egay’s unrelenting path. Each name on the list carries a story of struggle and survival, a tale of resilience etched into the very fabric of their beings.

CAMACOP President Executive Bishop Eduardo C. Cajes issued the directive to the district of DMS Jecubino Rufino to release the ₱11,000 cash assistance for the immediate purchase of relief goods. Estanol, whose concern was exemplary, was instrumental in alleviating the plight of those affected – particularly in the documentation and distribution of the goods.

But the support does not end there. The call echoes out to all, a plea to stand vigilant and attentive to the needs of their fellow members in the affected churches. A provision of groceries worth 1,000 pesos per household, sourced from the CALAMITY FUND, is set in motion to provide immediate relief. The directive is clear: Document every step, every action taken, ensuring transparency and accountability. Enrg. Onggona and Marie Policano [contact their messengers for report] stand ready to receive these accounts, a testament to the commitment of the community in the face of dire circumstances.

CAMACOP President Executive Bishop Eduardo C. Cajes voice resounds in unity as he acknowledges the gravity of the situation, expressing concern for the 94 families spanning five provinces—Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Abra—hardest hit by the fury of Typhoon Egay. The words of DMS Jecubino Rufino serve as a somber reminder of the challenges that lie ahead, but also as a rallying cry for collective strength.

In the face of Typhoon Egay’s devastation, these lists and actions emerge as symbols of hope. Through Teacher Lina Estanol’s dedication and the community’s unwavering support, the affected families take the first steps on their journey towards rebuilding and recovery, proving that even amidst the darkest of storms, the human spirit shines brightly
