ROXAS CITY—The province of Capiz is now finalizing the various activities for the first year Supertyphoon Yolanda commemorative program Nov. 8.

According to Capiz Provincial Administrator Jose Villanueva, “we are not remembering the fate of Yolanda but the opportunity to work together and how people cooperate with each other to stand anew during the crisis.”

Villanueva said that the first anniversary of Yolanda will serve as a thanksgiving day and a moment for to recognize all the people, agencies and groups—both local and foreign—who have helped the people of Capiz after the tragedy.

Provincial Tourism and Cultural Affairs Officer Alphonsus Tesoro will lead the commemoration.

The remembrance should shed light on how Yolanda damaged the lives, properties and livelihood of the Capiceños but also how we were able to restore and rebuild.

The program will elaborate the Capiznon’s bayanihan way of coping after the typhoon and how “we were comforted by the presence of one another and the support of various agencies, individuals and organizations.”

Activities will include a Thanksgiving Mass, forum with video presentation of various humanitarian groups and organizations who assisted in restoring the lives of the people of Capiz; candle-lighting ceremonies and cultural presentations.

Various agencies and groups will also have their own activities during the day. The Philippine Information Agency and the Capiz Association of Government Public Information Offi cers will also lead a Thanksgiving Mass and a tree planting on the same date at the Meditation Hills in Bgy. Maninang, Sapian, Capiz.
