#ReliefPH: A Little Help Can Go A Long Way


Source: yahoo.com
Source: mb.com.ph
I am at loss for words to describe how I feel after seeing and hearing reports on the devastation brought about by super Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) when it struck my motherland, Philippines, a few days ago. Death toll has drastically escalated from 1000 to 10000 in just a span of 24 hours, with a number of people still reportedly missing. I couldn't imagine that such catastrophe was even possible, but then yet, it happened and the least that we can do, for now, is to lend a helping hand to those who are in need.

So if you're thinking of getting that Starbucks planner or that iPhone 5S for Christmas, then why not consider sparing a parcel of your blessings to these affected families? Come to think of it, a cup of coffee is more than enough to buy a kilo of rice and 2 cans of sardines to feed a hungry family in these typhoon-stricken areas.

1.) DO NOT PACK NOODLES, RICE OR ANYTHING THAT NEEDS WATER. There is no water and electricity so it is impossible to cook this kind of food. Stick to bread, canned goods that are ready-to-eat and can be opened WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A CAN OPENER.

2.) PACK MEDICINE. Most especially basic medicine (biogesic, bioflu, robitussin, etc). Also if possible, include medicine for surface wounds as many have been wounded because of the debris and fallen rooftops.

3.) PACK AT LEAST ONE BOTTLE OF WATER. People are raging for water (some have even become violent just for water). There are no indicated sources of potable water.

4.) PACK CANDLES AND MATCHES. There will be no electricity for a minimum of two months so all people will need these.

5.) ENCOURAGE YOUR RESPECTIVE GROUP/ORGANIZATION TO DONATE BODYBAGS. Bodies are lying around the roads within the city and some of the places have already been filled up with bodies.

I do not claim credit for these tips. I am just spreading the word around. Kudos to the brilliant mind behind this. You're the man! 


Show some love this Christmas by sharing a percentage of your 13th month pay, Christmas bonuses, allowances, or even just a day worth of your salary. Or better yet, you can ask the contact persons above if you want to allot your precious time to repack goods instead of just wasting time on your smart gadgets. Or the least you could do, is to PLEASE SHARE OR TWEET THIS POST to help spread the word around. It's just a click away, so please do so.

We can only do so much but a little of what we have can go a long way to help our fellow countrymen. As they say, it is better to give than to receive. Have faith. God always provides. Together, we will rise above every storm.


P.S: On a related note, if you're still not convinced to give some help, just please READ THIS!
