Right now in the Philippines, thousands of people are displaced from their own homes due to the tragic aftermath of the Taal Volcano eruption that happened in mid-January. With many losing everything they own, they are in desperate need of food, supplies, and other basic necessities. One man leading the charge for these victims is Como Iquin Jose: a jeepney driver who has been tirelessly spending his time delivering medical supplies and providing assistance at a nearby food mission. But what exactly is a “jeepney”? Noted for their unique designs and striking displays of colorful Filipino art, jeepneys are a cost-effective form of transportation that serves the needs of local Manilans. In this episode, we ride along with Como to see just how his jeepney is helping those affected by one of the Philippines’ most devastating natural disasters in recent history.
Our vision is to build a lasting grassroots movement of young people from every country to report on real social and cultural issues. We believe having meaningful discussions with people with different opinions is extremely important. We also believe that any ordinary person can deliver real news and commentary. Through our original and in-depth interviews of real people, we will challenge you – the global youth – to think critically and challenge various cultural and social issues.
