Yolanda survivor's heartfelt message: 'If we had someone like Duterte in 2013, things would've been lot easier'

President Rodrigo Duterte was "very very satisfied" with the government's response to Typhoon Ompong, which worn out the country's provinces in the north and left dozens of people dead, says Malacanang on Sunday.

It seems that it was not only the chief executive who’s very satisfied with how all agencies and local government units have demonstrated readiness to respond to the typhoon Ompong.


Maureen Rose Mejia-Villar, a netizen in support to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, took to Facebook to express her gratitude towards the effort and service exerted by the government in responding to calamity-battered provinces.

As a Super Typhoon Yolanda survivor in Leyte, Mejia-Villar said that she envied the people and provinces affected by Super Typhoon Ompong for having Duterte, “a true working President of the Philippines who can be seen and is actually on top of the situation before, during, and after a disastrous storm.”

Maureen Rose Mejia-Villar full post reads: 

As a Super Typhoon Yolanda survivor here in Leyte Province (Ormoc), I ENVY the people and the provinces affected by Super Typhoon Ompong...because we now have a true working President of the Philippines who can be seen and is actually on top of the situation before, during, and after a disastrous storm.

If we had Duterte or someone very much like him with such empathy for fellow Filipinos (no matter their political affiliation or color) as President back in 2013, maybe things would've been a whole lot easier for Yolanda victims and survivors.

I thank God for Tatay D.

Only ingrates will find something wrong with what I just said above.
