Papoose Lantajo

Papoose is the barangay (neighborhood) captain of San Joaquin. He lost his father and scores of people in his barangay to Yolanda. In the days and weeks following, he worked non-stop and single-handedly coordinated local relief efforts because help was not coming. This included search and rescue, retrieving bodies, and assigning a mass grave site. Since Yolanda, Papoose is now implementing disaster readiness programs and strategies to mitigate future calamities. He even passed on a city council
