The New Beginning

A skeleton crew of three braved through muddy roads, followed people under the inescapable heat of the sun, and walked through bipolar downpours from Christmas, New Years Eve, up to the start of classes in January, but none of these could compare to what the children of Leyte went through the day Typhoon Haiyan brought about its wrath. However, these children showed resiliency in the midst of devastation. 

We followed three families in the span of 12 days; Lacandazo Family from San Joaquin, Palo, Adelandato Family from Tacloban and Duque Family from Cogon, Palo. These families are some of the thousands who have survived the tragedy and shared to us their stories of loss and survival.

Now we went back to our places. Me, Nash Ang to Seoul Korea, Victor Villanueva to Manila, Philippines and Ronnie Gamboa from Cebu Philippines.

This day marks the official post production phase of Project Paraiso and start the campaign for helping these families and their children to recover from the ground. After sharing a travel photo blog, We will post weekly updates on the details of our shooting since we have more time to write.

Continue to follow us and share this page to your friends and relatives. Join us and be part of helping these families rebuild their lives.
