The Human Chain

I had the opportunity to volunteer for Ondoy relief efforts a couple of days last week.  Sometimes we had to move a stack of supplies from one place to another.  What’s the easiest way to do this?  A human chain.  You simply line up with your fellow volunteers and start passing boxes/bags from person to person.  We moved large quantities in just minutes–work that would take hours for an individual to do.

The human chain is more than just a way to move boxes.  I believe it is symbolic of what’s happening in the Philippines right now.  Churches, organizations, and individuals are all working together to help those in need–accomplishing so much more than we could if we tried to do this alone.

Let’s keep the chain going, guys!  Mabuhay!

Though one may be overpowered,
       two can defend themselves.
       A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

-Ecclesiastes 4:12

  3. What a blessing to read this! I’m here in Hawaii where the US Pacific Command (USPACOM) is headquartered. I’ve seen how such devastations has brought people, families, churches, and countries together amid the storm. Here’s a fact sheet that outlines what the US has done to help so far (click on the link below PACOM Disaster Relief Fact Sheet):

    I hope the dust settles soon.
