Help Those in Need as WE CALL HER YOLANDA Holds Fund Raiser Screenings on March 25 and 26
Stories of hope from real survivors of the fiercest and most devastating typhoon that ever hit the Philippines are featured in the inspiring movie “We Call Her Yolanda”. The movie will have limited special screenings on March 25 (Saturday) at Greenbelt 3 Cinema 1 at 10:00AM and on March 26 (Sunday) at Powerplant Cinema 1 at 8:00PM. Tickets cost P500 each and proceeds of the screenings are for the benefit of RAM Philippines (Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps) for their current and future medical missions.
“We Call Her Yolanda” started with volunteers who have seen the catastrophe that hit Tacloban and returned one year later with the intent to gather stories of bravery and recovery from the survivors. Upon their return, they saw that many families still lived in tents, plantations were still destroyed, and fishermen were still reeling from the loss of their boats. Visits and services to the community became continuous for the team, each time growing closer to the families that recall their experiences and share their paths to recovery. Stories of loss and survival are recounted by a Lieutenant Commander, a Barangay (village) Captain, a farmer, a couple, and two fishermen. Although there was still much pain and grievance over lives destroyed, their stories and spirits reveal a community strengthened. The film is directed by Anthony Bari, Jr.
“On November 8th 2013 Super Typhoon “Yolanda” was the strongest recorded tropical storm to reach land. That was a day nobody was prepared for and many people have learned from. Typhoon Yolanda struck parts of the Philippine islands, destroying everything in its path and ripping people from their homes, livelihood, and loved ones. The events changed the way many of the Filipino people live and how they perceive each other.
