A revisit to Barangay Costa Brava, San Jose

A revisit to Barangay Costa Brava, San Jose… the living conditions in this barangay is still reminiscent of the effects of Typhoon Yolanda, as if the storm has just left a few weeks ago. Sad to say, the improvements in this place are minimal. And with the hot summer weather blanketing the “tent city”, the condition can be worse than before. I pity the people here, for more than 6 months now, they are still in almost the same situation as last December 2013. I’ve been coming back to this place to continue documenting the life here. Just a few days ago, my interviews with the local residents of Barangay Costa Brava have indicated that almost no relief is coming to them anymore and the supposed relocation is still far from reality. I hope there will be more improvements to come and the faster it gets to them, the better. Hope springs eternal.
