Apart from our prized bayanihan culture, Filipinos are known for displaying resiliency amid tragedies and natural calamities. As the relief efforts continue to pour in for the displaced Batangas residents who were forced to flee their homes, the Taal evacuees are able to make light of their situation and find humor in the clothing donations that they've received from well-meaning senders.
Facebook page Byaheng Lemery has compiled photos of Batanguenos showing off unusual clothes they've received so far, including shiny suits, fast food crew uniforms, girls scout attires, and—you wouldn't believe!—even wedding gowns.
As the Pormahan sa Evacuation Center photo series goes viral online, netizens are highly impressed at how Batanguenos are handling the situation—that is, with heaps of humor and big smiles on their faces!
That said, Taal evacuees still need our help. Don't forget to do your part and reach out to local sectors and organizations that are mobilizing relief efforts for the victims of the tragic event. While you're at it, remember to pack items that displaced members of the community truly need.
