  5. Hello. I’m from Ibajay, Aklan but i’m currently in Manila studying. My mom told me how devastated our province is, and although I can picture it in my mind, there is no comparison to what i actually saw in the pictures. I’m always praying that our province will recover this tragedy and rise to the its restored place.
    Let us pray that God will give us the courage and guide us always, that this will not happen again. A minute of prayer for our kababayan will count.
    Get well soon Congressman. We are praying for your quick recovery!
