help for ondoy victims

I appeal for your help for our kababayans who were victims of the flood brought by the storm Ondoy (international name: ketsana).

As of this writing there are about 70 people dead and hundreds are still missing... people still needing rescue. please help in any way you can, and let us pray for those who are still in their rooftops and is in need of rescue. :(

There are countless of videos showing the wrath of Ondoy and how pitiful and heartbreaking it is to see our people swept by the flood. here's one video that shows a really disturbing scene where a group of people were swept of the floods in the marikina river and the onlookers cant do anything to help them because the current was too strong.

I'm glad you came back to this blog especially for this. We've just given to both our own barangay's relief center (a nearby barangay was completely flooded) and to the Ateneo one for Marikina victims. Aside from canned goods and water, needed urgently are slippers, alcohol and wound dressing. Many flood victims have been walking around barefoot in muddy streets full of broken glass. If you have Twitter or Facebook accounts, please spread the word. Thanks.

The first photo in this entry showed exactly our place. If it was taken in on September 26, then I was there included with thousands who were stranded. The water was very deep there was no way for me to cross the flood so I could go to my pregnant wife who was left all alone in the house. I'd like to share with you my experience as well as my wife's experience with the storm. I hope you don't mind if I post it here (no link, promise)
