Hix’s family is among thousands of reelings from the devastation that Yutu caused. Her mother and brother lost their homes to the typhoon, who tore the roofs and walls and lowered all that the family owns.
“My sister was asleep when my mother’s roof gave up. She jumped out of bed and ran to the decor where she hid in a closet. My cousin hid behind a fridge while they both thought to wait for it, says Hix.
Despite the loss of property, Hix and many others are grateful that they are still with their family members.
“Tomorrow, there will be another beautiful day in paradise and because I’m more than capable, I’ll be out to help those who need it,” said Hix.
