Ateneo de Manila High School
I was in a highly rated national hospital in London in early September for a week. I was taken care of by a team of the British doctors and a group of hard-working nurses – majority of the nurses were from the Philippines. They were prompt, kind and cheerful. My experience in the hospital was lifted up by their merrily smiles a lot.
And now in their mother country, many towns and villages are totally devastated and many people are living without safe place, food and water. I really hope that the help they need and deserve will arrive to them as quickly as possible.
