I know that RJA has a large following in the Philippines, so I figured that here would be as good a place as any to ask some questions about the Philippines.
Next summer, I'm hoping to go the Philippines for a month with a humanitarian organization called A Brouder View. (website ---> http://abroaderview.org/tanauan.php ) I plan on combining the orphanage/child care assistance with the street kids/youth program. The only problem with my plan is convincing my parents about the safety. (I'll be turning 18 next summer)
So here's my question for all you RJA fans from the Philippines: do you know the Tacloban area, particularly Tanauan? (Tanauan is 45 minutes outside Tacloban.) Any information about the political situation in the area would be appreciated. In short, would Tanauan be safe for a 17 year old white girl from America or would I be seriously targeted with a high chance of being harmed?
Also, anything else ya'll think of that I should know would also be appreciated.
Thanks guys! =]
