Let's help the victims of typhoon Sendong

Let's save Iligan, Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao !

While everyone is preparing for the upcoming Yuletide celebration, our brothers in Visayas and Mindanao are suffering from the aftermath of the typhoon Sendong which struck the southern part of the country this weekend.

Never was the province exposed to such threats for several years but recently the devastation of Sendong has brought everyone in these parts of the counrty to their knees.

I was so struck by the photos and footages shared by fellow bloggers on what happened at Cagayan de Oro. Analogous as it happened during typhoon Ondoy yet the damage and the death toll has surpassed the former.

I was so disheartened to see bodies of dead children while their parents and relatives grieve. It's too much for me to accept what I saw that I burst into tears. I felt what these people are experiencing. A father with a lifeless kid in his arms. It really breaks my heart. I can't help to think that it might happen to us. Yet  I am thankful that the Lord has kept me and my family safe throughout the storms that passed.

I fear to say that the dead are already gone in this world (may their souls rest in peace) yet the people who are left living are still to suffer the pain and regret of the aftermath. Lives lost can no longer be replaced even with any amount. True. But a helping hand is what the survivors of this tragedy is what it takes for them to stand up from their bad fall.


I ask for everyone of us to help our fellowmen who are victims of this unlikely tragedy. You can make your donations to the various channels available to you.

I know it is Christmas Day soon (6 days upon publishing this post). Sharing just any amount that you can gratefully give to the poor victims of typhoon Sendong would help them in any way possible. It is now the right time to show the true meaning of Christmas to our fellow countrymen.

We may have gifts and food to eat this Christmas but these people will be left without anything to celebrate for themselves.

You can start donating even just 5 pesos for the red cross. Small amounts when done i great numbers can make a huge difference. Be thankful we are still well and alive.

It was indeed very disheartening! This morning I just found out that one of us bloggers from CDO have lost 3 out of her 4 children. That is just indescribable!

Up for this one!

Thanks for sharing Adrian.
