Typhoon Ondoy in Manila

Typhoon Ondoy in Manila


In lieu of the Typhoon Ondoy that battered Metro Manila, I am re-posting some information from blogs with posts about and concerning rescue operations, important numbers to call, current situation, and relief operation, donation and volunteering options. Throughout this whole endeavor, I’ve been a helpless blogger – except for a few tweets (@irrashai) and social media posts, I was consumed more about worrying about my own and my family’s safety. And my internet wasn’t as nice either. So to help out though quite a bit late, please see the INFORMATION below on how you can help. This is also an appeal to the international community and Filipinos abroad who can read this, kindly help out. This is Pinoy Bayanihan at its best, let’s all be part of it.
