Please help the victims of Tropical Storm Sendong.

Last Saturday, approximately 1-2am, the flood caused by the Tropical Storm rose too quickly while the victims of Northern Mindano were sleeping.

I don’t know how could I help my fellow countrymen who became victims of the killer storm Sendong (international name Washi) one week before Christmas but to reach out to everyone online who could. I don’t know how many of you will read this but just sharing this post would mean a lot.

26 minutes from now, as updated by NDRRMC Exec. Dir. Ramos, the death toll has already reached 927. Approximately 1400 if you include the numbers of those who are still missing.

Nilson Loplop scans the damage brought about by Tropical Storm Sendong to his family's house in Baranggay Nazareth, Cagayan De Oro City barely a week before Christmas. Flood caused by tropical storm Sendong caught many families unaware as it struck in the middle of the night and destroyed hundreds of houses on its path.

Please help them.
Help me spread the word.

80% of the water pipes in the province of Cagayan de Oro is broken which means they have no clean water to use and drink. They have no food, no shelter and no clothes. Babies, little kids and pregnant women are already getting sick. Funeral homes in the most affected areas already stopped accepting dead bodies since everything has been maximized. Evacuation centers are filled to the brim that public schools in the affected areas became evacuation centers too.

A woman cries after seeing her relative inside a coffin at a funeral house in Cagayan De Oro City on Monday. Hundreds more have yet to know the whereabouts of their loved ones after mammoth floods caused by tropical storm Sendong destroyed houses and separated several families.

At least 19,759 families or 108,130 persons are affected by the calamity according to the National Disaster Risk Response Management Council (NDRRMC).

UNICEF Philippines estimates that 43,000 children are affected by the calamity.

A passing motorist gives a bottle of water to an affected resident of Baranggay Macasandig in Cagayan De Oro City on Monday. Victims of floods appeal for help following a severe shortage in potable water due to tropical storm Sendong's onslaught.

They all need the basics: rice, canned goods, instant noodles, instant coffee, sugar, biscuits (or any dried goods), clothes, blankets, medicines and even portalets.
