You can Help Fulfill a Dream!

Dark, noisy and uncomfortable.

JR Catacio 1

JR Catacio, a 9-year-old boy, endures this discomfort just to study his school lessons every day.

A small store, which serves as his “study area,” is not well-lit. He thought that this difficulty could hinder him from studying well, and later on, from achieving his dreams.

“I might not finish college, it would be hard for me to find a job, and I won’t reach my dreams,” JR lamented.

Their small store, which is made of light and unstable materials, also serves as their home. JR and his father sleep outside of it with a thick plastic cover as their only shelter during storm surges.

Their whole family was vulnerable to all possible dangers.

However, they’re scared to go back to their original house after experiencing the super typhoon Yolanda that damaged their home and livelihood. His father’s boat, which was used in fishing was wrecked during the storm surge.

Such traumatic events left them anxious about their lives.

“My heart aches terribly [whenever I remember that],” JR mumbled.

But for the sake of his dream of a better life, he persevered and studied well.

Your generous giving shed light on the path to his dreams.

JR’s family was one of the chosen beneficiaries of Operation Blessing’s Community of Hope (COH), turning over free houses to Yolanda-stricken families in Tacloban.

Their whole family was delighted and grateful.

“I am excited about our new house! I can study well; the room is spacious. It won’t be very difficult for us anymore. Thank you very much, Operation Blessing!” Exclaimed JR.
