The purpose of this Blog is to update readers about news and information as it pertains to the immigration of Healthcare workers into the US. But the news of the bombing of the Glorietta Mall in Makati City this afternoon transcends the specific purpose of the blog. We’re all devastated to hear the initial reports that there have been several deaths and many injuries.

Many members of HLG have spent time in Makati over the years and have shopped at the Glorietta Mall. Friends of ours have said that the bomb went off near “Jerry’s Restaurant,” which was a favorite of HLG’s.

HLG’s thoughts and prayers will be our friends in Makati.
