The calamity that recently hit the Philippines, typhoon Yolanda, is considered as one of the strongest recorded typhoons in history. It flattened several towns and cities in the Visayas and left pure devastation in its wake. Many communities suffered considering that no structure was left standing in areas that were directly hit by the typhoon. However, the Filipino resiliency will always live on. There will certainly be a way to overcome such a tragedy. In fact, the Philippines have weathered so many tragedies and it has always been able to overcome them all.
Currently the Philippines may be facing one of the most horrific devastations, but for sure, it will overcome it all.
Those in the hard hit areas may not be able to recover immediately but in time, the moment that relief operations reach them, they will likewise build their cities and start all over. Many things may have been lost but the spirit of the Filipino people will live and overcome.
In areas where the typhoon struck but they were not directly in its path, recovery may be much easier. With both the local government and the private sector working hand in hand, real estate projects in lesser devastated areas may be able to recover much faster. Some hindrance in operations could be expected but the extent of things that needs to be rebuilt will not be too much.
Hope is always on the horizon for the Philippines.
