(A story of how a group of young Tausugs made a Tsunami of change)

"In great sufferings and trials, we will see how united brothers can be."

After the February 3, 2011 Calamity that fell upon our homeland Sulu, a wave of sadness and wordiness also swept our heart just as the flood swept the homes of our Tausug Brothers. At first we, Tausug students from Marawi (a place far away from Sulu), felt helpless; thought that there is nothing we can do but pray. Perhaps, it might have been that way, until we decided to try, just try to do something to help. And then we made a great change.

These are the people and their actions that made this simple project possible; that started from practically nothing but our 'concern and love' to our fellow Tausugs and brothers in Islam. I wanted to thank these people for making our hearts captivated with joy. Only Allah can give the reward that you all deserved.

HELP THE FLOOD VICTIMS IN SULU!

TO ALL OUR FRIENDS, BROTHERS and SISTERS;
TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE CONCERN!

PLS HELP OUR FELLOW BROTHERS IN SULU WHO ARE NOW SUFFERING FROM THE LOST THEY HAD LAST THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2011 WHEN A TORNADO AND A STRONG STORM HIT JOLO TOWN in SULU. 1,140 FAMILIES WITH 4,560 DEPENDENTS WERE AFFECTED AND DISPLACED! MORE THAN 300 HOUSES WERE DAMAGED AMONG WHICH, ALMOST 60 HOUSES WERE TOTALLY DESTROYED!

FIVE PEOPLE, INCLUDING AN INFANT DIED, AND MORE THAN 50 WERE INJURED.
SULU WAS AMONG THE POOREST PROVINCE IN THE COUNTRY, AND LIVING WITH THIS CALAMITY IS INDEED A HARD THING FOR OUR BROTHERS IN SULU.




THEY NEED OUR HEP!

What's in my mind

It's a Freezing February in Marawi. And what's in my mind?
One. I am thinking of me entering Med.School next year. Ameen. At first I have considered stopping for a while (that's one year, it's certainly IS a WHILE). And perhaps find some job to earn small money. Save some, and use it for my first enrollment. But then came the NMAT result: I got a really-really-really unexpected percentile score of 98%! whoa! And it means I can avail more scholarship with this score. And that turned my decision on a total U-turn: I Will enroll in Med School. And I will be the first Doctor in our Family! Yeah!
As for the schools I am planning to enroll in, i have the top three yet: UP Med; St.Lukes' and MSU Med.
Two. Graduation (at last!) and I can't help thinking: "really, am i now going to graduate? It felt like I had just finished paying my first Student fee at the Cashier's Office!" After all the overnights spent; the amazing mist (fog) that covered golf course; eve…
