How to Help The Victims of Typhoon Yolanda

We lose our ability to live fully if we neglect or ignore our responsibility to the other people who share this planet with us. We cannot feel whole until we are helping other people. We do need down time, and we do need time to ourselves, but we very much need to acknowledge our ties to our fellow human beings and act as if those people meant more to us than our jobs or pets or cars do. They are much more important than anything material that we ever can get our hands on or strive for.” ― Tom Walsh

The Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013 which caused significant damage to the central part of the country. Allow me to share this heart-breaking news report about the after-math of Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines.

This is another time for all of us to show everyone that when Filipinos come together as one, we can make a big difference. We can change the lives of our fellow Filipino people.

“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.” ― Mother Teresa

  3. Thanks for sharing us the legitimate list of contacts on who and where to approach for our donations, because in times like this there are also those people who are taking advantage of the situation by soliciting donations but will never reach those victims.

  4. this is certainly a good help in disseminating information to those clueless people who still want to donate or give help. let's pray for our fellow filipinos!

  5. Good Job Algene, for compiling all the contacts. These will be very helpful especially to our fellow Filipinos living broad who want's to help.

  6. Every time our country is visited by a natural calamity many concerned, generous people are always on the alert to help their fellow Filipino to lessen the burden of those victims. And that is how Filipino is noted of. This kind of move could facilitate the collection or remittance of the needed financial or in kind assistance to the typhoon victims.

  12. Nice way of helping people in the Visayas through valuable information.

  13. These are very useful information so that those who intend to send help will know where to send their donation.
