3 days before November 8, we have been warned with the Super typhoon Haiyan headed our way. Because we went through a terrible experience few years back with typhoon Frank, we have prepped our office,warned our team mates, went home early but no one can prepare us with what was ahead. November 8, Friday 1PM: The winds howled, trees start to fall one by one, roof slowly tears off from houses just like paper. The neighbor’s house went straight to our house, slammed at my mom’s bedroom and missing my dad in just a few inches away.  We hid in the last room that has a ceiling. Our roof slowly went off room by room. Kids started to cry and I did too…

The preparations:

This is the after:

One of our team mates house:

Nearby Gasoline Station:

New Assembly of God

Give Hope.

In Aklan, though the people here need food and basic needs, there is a higher need to rebuild homes. Financial assistance is needed esp to those who lost their homes in the typhoon.

Here’s how you can help:

If you own a construction company, an architect or an engineer, it will be a good idea to bring your team here and help rebuild schools, churches, and houses. The provinces who are greatly affected needs people who can help rebuild houses.


In Kinds: While food and clothing is the usual donation that we need in times like this, it would also be of big help if you could send:

  • Mosquito Nets for those in the evacuation centers
  • Banig / Beddings
  • Relief Goods / Food
  • Rice

The Office Escape is doing relief goods mission to our team mates, family members and nearby communities with high hopes to shed light and help to them. The funds that we will raise will be used to buy construction materials for our team mates who lost their homes, and also to their families and communities who are greatly affected.
