Volunteer: Leah Ettema
Contributions from Leah Ettema
While enjoying the Bobon Sto. Nino festival in Northern Samar, the four of us, volunteers in Batch 268, met a volunteer from Batch 3 who had returned to his former site in the Philippines to enjoy the festivities!
After a day working in one of the villages, one of my coworks decided to snap this picture as we waited for the trike to fill up with people in order to return to the "poblacion".
As my coworkers and I were eating on the beach, a fisherman walked by and proudly showed off his catch, which included a red snapper, that he caught with his spear.
One of the fisherfolk families in Barangay (village) Magsaysay that my counterparts and I worked with standing in front of their traditional Filipino home, a Nipa hut.
