Typhoon Sendong Victims: A Call for Help

I guess everyone here are gravely concerned for all those affected by the devastating calamity that occurred in Northern Mindanao over the weekend. Typhoon Sendong (International name: Washi) and its subsequent flash floods relentlessly hit not just in Cagayan de Oro but Iligan City as well. Neighboring towns, affecting over 60,000 families and claiming almost 1000 lives, with over 100 people still reported missing. With the death toll still rising, thousands of people seeking food and shelter, and river systems, infrastructure and homes severely damaged, the people of Mindanao will need all the aid they can get as they try to recover from this tragic blow.

Here’s how :
