We’re featuring The Sparrows of Climaco Avenue , written by Kenneth Yu and narrated by Fides Bernardo, in remembrance of the Ondoy tragedy. This first appeared in Rocket Kapre’s Ruin and Resolve, a charity anthology, put together by Paolo Chikiamco, then reprinted in Philippine Speculative Fiction 5, edited by Nikki Alfar and Vin Simbulan.

There’s still some work to be done to completely rehabilitate victims of last year’s mega typhoons. If you want to help the Philippine National Red Cross, do log on HERE. Rocket Kapre also donates to the PNRC when you purchase their e-book Ruin and Resolve.

Running Time: 14m 27s
