We have a lull in making news in this site, as we are all busy running the BANGON CADIZNON: Special Operations Group Missions. 2 Weeks After, our volunteers, members and yours truly got sick, mostly a combination of flu, muscle aches and stomach aches. This is the story of our Volunteers and what's up now in Cadiz.
On The Cadiz City News
Power is back up on almost 80% of residences and establishments in the City Proper, water is steadily available, and common basic goods are back in supply. People are busy with reconstruction, and at this time, my plan of starting up a Cadiz Chamber of Commerce would have been great at controlling the prices. We expect the DTI and BIR to do an investigation on the shops in Cadiz soon, especially hardware, construction and even the Bamboo and Nipa shops in the City Public Market. This is because there is no stringent price control, and prices of building materials has increased by almost two folds.
There are rumors that DINAGSA, the City Fiesta of Cadiz on January will be postponed and a simple Mass would be given that day. Some argue it's because the fund for Dinagsa has been used as a Calamity fund, and on the other side; it is simply because they mentioned it is not appropriate to hold a fiesta when the sadness of Typhoon Yolanda is still on the midst. A Form of sympathy perhaps to the other Cities? To Our City?
Personally, DINAGSA is all about celebrating and honoring the Patron Saint of Cadiz City which is the Sto. Niño de Cadiz. Celebrating the people, and thanks giving!

We can't argue that there are still heroes among us. Our Volunteers before we started the BANGON CADIZNON Task Force, has been storming the weather and going house-to-house to help in the rescue efforts. Not Only that, the CREATE-RESCUE Team has also been doing the same.
This is My Personal KUDOS To My Team, My Friends and My Family at BANGON CADIZNON!!!
After the Storm, these same people also volunteered their time in the relief efforts and here at BANGON CADIZNON. Then two weeks later, most of our volunteers got sick. Late Nights with no descent light, eating without seeing much what you put in your mouth, the smell of Gas Lamps burning, the perennial “Biro Sa Ilong” all contribute to what our Volunteers had to endure.
Wake up early to distribute goods, we don't worry about the system, we worry about logistics. We are Continue reading
