DEVELOPING THE ETHICS OF CARE

The Philippines, which is still reeling from the last typhoon Goni (Rolly in the Philippines), has been hit by yet another one Vamco (Ulysses in the Philippines). The houses experienced flooding due to the swelling of rivers. The situation is even worse in many places, especially those that were hit by Rolly just one week before.


The intense rain and strong winds were frightening enough but what brought about great destruction was the flooding caused by the swelling of the river whose source is the Sierra Madre mountains now punctured by so many quarries. While quarrying is important, it is also a major natural resource extractive sector that causes significant environmental problems.


There have been floods before, but it never got to this level. Now the people are focused on cleaning their houses and what’s left of their belongings. Their clothes would take 2-3 times washing before the smell and stain of mud can be removed. Rebuilding destroyed houses is a much bigger task and would take years probably. And a lot of help. The cry of the poor and the cry of our Common Home are deeply intertwined.


With the desire of living and developing the ethics of care our community reached to the cries of wounded, broken humanity ... the cries of the earth with the small gesture, made with great love, of buying, packing and distributing bags of groceries and toiletries in Rizal province. Thanks to the help of our sisters who financially supports us in this initiative we have bring the Consolation of God to 50 families.
