"I'm at the site already, what do I do now?

I'm not an expert on this, but I guess we should just rely on common sense. Don't stand idly at the corner and make pa-cute to that guy over there wait for someone to ask for your help. Go there and do something! If you see plastic bags on the floor, pick it up. If you see people carrying boxes, give them a hand. Really, it doesn't matter what you do. Just do something. Tulong pa rin iyon. Remember, kahit gaano kalaki o kaliit yung bagay na gagawin mo, basta bukal sa loob mo, I'm sure people will appreciate it. At the end of the day, kapag masakit na katawan mo kakabuhat ng boxes at kakasort ng maraming lata ng sardinas, you'll realize that it's worth it kasi alam mo nakatulong ka. I hope maka-survive tayong lahat sa trahedyang ito.

God bless us all."
