Here is more information courtesy of Inquirer.net on how to help Typhoon Ondoy’s victims. The public’s response has been very high. But truth be told, there is need for more relief goods.
I join calls from government and the private sector to request the public to be very careful in spreading information. Please don’t spread false information that would trigger panic. Please verify any critical messages first before sending them.
When donating, do double check the account numbers you will deposit cash into. There are reports of individuals spreading the wrong account numbers for their own selfish gain. Those doing this must be arrested!
Our prayers, actions, and call to action continue. May all our efforts now be focused on helping each other and lifting each other from this crisis.
