Hello Steemit family. Greeting of Peace and Happiness.

This is uwanderer sharing with you another inspiring stories of ordinary people who wanted to aid their fellow neighbours.

The local volunteers have seen the struggles of their neighbours due to the worsening case of the pandemic.

With this rising concerns in the neighbourhood, the residents felt worried for others. And these unease feeling lift up the hidden and dormant mindset which is the communal unity or commonly know in Philippines as Bayanihan.

Bayanihan is one of the old communal unity practice by the Filipinos long before the Spanish colonial invaded the Philippines.

Bayanihan spirit paved many successful stories such as building farms, houses, transporting houses, transporting farm or aquatic foods and supplies, during calamity and many more.

With the sprout of the community pantry in each corner of the country. It truly awaken the dormant Filipino Spirit which is the Bayanihan.

Below are snippets of the simple Bayanihan in the community level.

Hope this gives you the opportunity to see the community initiatives done by concerned citizens of the country.

When we see love that reaches us in a fraction of a second... When we see too much more than we can possibly comprehend... Our emotional intelligence is far beyond what can be expressed in words.

This lifetime was spent not in calm seas, but in storms that would have shattered many lives. It's something to be proud of, something to hang on to, and something to help you see yourself as you really are. It has to do with your giving, which brightens your heart and enflames your soul; LOVE is a rare gift, but it is yours!
