Almost a year later after Typhoon Yolanda, families affected by it were still struggling to recover from the disaster. Words fail to describe how it had been difficult for Yolanda victims to get back on their feet. Meanwhile, Chef Luth – Executive Chef and Restaurateur of Loja Toraja – saw an opportunity to provide livelihood for some of the victims of the typhoon and took them in. She saw their potential and continues to believe in them – giving them continuous, proper, and adequate training for them to be well-equipped to serve Loja Toraja’s clients. She is a firm believer that there is so much potential in these people though they lack formal education and that with hard work, perseverance, and a humble attitude, they can overcome their obstacles and succeed in life.
Chef Luth hopes to sustain the livelihood of these people and encourage them to keep growing and learning and never stop dreaming for themselves and their families.
