Just Do It – Viator Libert’s Approach To Typhoon Relief

1459837_626592570736109_1780895681_nViator Libert’s campaign is another exemplification of the spirit of Path 2 Us.   He doesn’t need to set up a large charitable foundation.  He doesn’t wait until he feels he has enough resources.  He doesn’t send goods to sit in warehouses.

He just goes out and does whatever he can.

Viator and his cousin take his trusty black pickup truck and drive in the middle of the night until dawn.  They hand out whatever relief supplies he can buy…delivering life giving goods and hope to the people of typhoon-devastated Leyte.

rak en roll we give ou relief operation night time i drive at 12 oclock in the evening up to 6 oclock in the morning.. to check if it true nga delikado but wla man they are very friendly people in leyte.. they even prepared coffee for us… during our operation we are two person team my cousin…. rak en roll

Their effort may not get attention in the media.  That doesn’t matter to them.  They are not doing this for the fame.

They are not saving the world.   At least not with the resources they have.  But they are making a difference with each and every life that they touch.  And perhaps saving some of those very lives.

Like St. Francis, Viator understands that there is only so much that one man can do.  And yet he knows that he is called to take whatever action is within his power.

We have seen him raise 600 Pesos (the equivalent of less than $15) from recycling trash in the disaster area…then take every bit of it to buy relief goods.

You have it in your power to help Viator Libert make a difference.   Are you thinking of buying burgers for your kids?  Make them a nutritious meal instead and give the money to Viator.  Chances are, you would have spent twice as much as he can get from filling his truck with trash.  You can always have the burgers tomorrow.   For some typhoon victims, tomorrow may never come.  Unless someone like Viator Libert gives them whatever he can afford from the bottom of his heart.

“For it is in giving that we receive.”
St. Francis of Assisi

Rak en Roll, Viator.  Rak en Roll.
