An evacuee from Taal who came home began a new business after holding all the relief goods received during evacuation.
When the Taal Volcano erupted, the unity of the Filipinos was seen. Aid for the evacuees in Batangas and several surrounding areas has come from various provinces and cities in the country.
And assistance continues to come to this day for affected people. And now that Taal is in level 3, some people who have been displaced from their homes have been able to fix their houses and businesses.
Christian Finn de Villa recently shared a photograph of his newly-opened shop due to the relief items he had still kept at the evacuation centre. In his message, Christian laughs, thanking those who have helped them because they had immediate business.
“Christian’s sari-sari store is officially now open!! Salamat po sa nag-donate. Nagkatindahan po ako nang di inaasahan. #BangonBatangas,” said Christian who chose to be optimistic despite future trials.
His instant sari-sari store photos have gone viral on social media. His post reached just 9,700 reactions, 744 comments, and 7,300 shares with a picture of his wares.’
Many netizens have seen good vibes in Christian’s post. They were happy to know that even though they had problems because of Taal, they were still able to give a smile to Filipino netizens.
