How to Help Typhoon Sendong Victims in Northern Mindanao Philippines

Friends and readers of virtual business matters, here's how to help typhoon Sendong victims in Mindanao, Philippines. Particularly in Cagayan De Oro, Iligan, Bukidnon, Negros Oriental, Lanao del Norte, Dumaguete, and other most affected part of Northern Mindanao.  

According to the National Red Cross Emergency Alert website, as of December 20, 12pm, the death toll has reached 720 (Cagayan De Oro 346, Iligan City 279, Bukidnon 47, Negros Oriental 37, Lanao del Norte 9, Compostela Valley 5, Zamboanga del Norte 3, Surigao del Sur 1). Most of the dead were asleep in the middle of the night on Friday when raging floodwaters pounded their homes from rivers and cascaded from mountain slopes following 12 straight hours of heavy rains in Mindanao. 

Friends, you can select from the following major TV network foundations, trusted organizations and other NGOs. You can donate in-kind, but I think cash and primary needs are mostly suggested. Let's join force and share our blessing to our kababayan in Northern Mindanao.

Again, you can select from the following. If I haven't mentioned some of the easiest way we can help and reach our kababayan, please also leave your comment below.

  1. I felt so sad about this catastrophic incident, I hope that people of the Philippines will then realize the value of our dear nature… stop illegal logging before the whole country plunge as a river…

  2. Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.

Let’s wait a few more months. It’s a battle between +1 and Like. Nowadays, the need to connect with other people through online or mobile is not anymore a wants, it’s now part of your basic needs, aside from foods, clothes and shelter.
