Fifteen ways to help the victims of Typhoon Sendong

Posted on

Once more, it is time for Filipino netizens to unite in this time of crisis.

A few nights ago, Typhoon Sendong wreaked havoc in Northern Mindanáo. It brought so much destruction particularly in Cagayán de Oro and Iligan. Aside from the typhoon, a deadly mix of gigantic timbers/driftwood (swept by the rainwater from the nearby mountains due to illegal logging), high tide, and darkness (the tempest occurred during the night) contributed to the catastrophe that destroyed so many lives around the Río de Cagayán and elsewhere. As of this writing, the death toll has risen above 1,000. And it is feared to rise even more. :-( The chaos caused by Typhoon Sendong proved to be more terrifying than Typhoon Ondoy.

Now it’s time to clean up. No political bickerings for now. This is the time that we all help our fellow Filipinos down south. We should not allow ourselves to be mere spectators of this tragedy, especially since Christmas is just around the corner. We are all part of this…
