We Need Your Help - The Aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan

Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) devastated the cities of Tacloban, Cebu, Guian as well as the provinces of Leyte, Samar, Aklan, Mindoro and Antique. Most of the deaths occurred as the storm surge filled downtown streets with water and debris. The evacuation centers which was suppose to serve as secure places became watery tombs. There were images of bodies covered with mats along the side of the roads. Relatives are still trying to make contact with their loved ones in those affected places after 2 days. The Philippine Red Cross and Government responders are making their way into isolated barangays. People are cut off with no food and water. So it's a race for survival now.

Here's how you can help. Please exercise due diligence when donating. Ask them how they're going to spend the money.



You can also try the Philippine Red Cross and volunteer in repacking items for distribution. It's more fun to do these with the barkada so call the posse. If you want more details about how to help or to make contact with people who are already organized in your local area please see this link - Rappler article

I'll try and update these post for more information.
