I just lost 70 photos I copied from my camera to the computer due to a power/generator outage. So, I am making this a brief account of my first two weeks with All Hands. My first stop was at All Hands Kananga base where I stayed two nights before heading to the Tacloban base. Kananga base holds more than 40 volunteers so it is a teeming place that can get chaotic.
