by Ronald Reyes, Tacloban City, June 10: Things are piling up, literally, inside the makeshift shelter of Jerico Dulosa, 44, a father of four children in Palo town, Leyte province.
“Eighteen months have passed since Haiyan hit us, and we are still like this,” he told ucanews.com, referring to a powerful typhoon that struck the area in November 2013.
“I don’t know what else I can do,” he said.
Haiyan was the strongest typhoon to have hit the country in decades. It killed at least 7,500 people and displaced some four million more.
Aside from shelter, Jerico is also confronted with the problem of where to get money for his children’s tuition as schools opened this month.
Jerico’s wife, Maribel, 46, takes care of the children while he is out working as a market inspector. He earns about US$242 a month — not enough to pay for all the debts he has incurred.
