    How can we help victims of Typhoon Ondoy

    (Flickr photo by rembcc)

    I’m sure this is the top question for so many of the Pinoy Answers community right now.  After Typhoon Ondoy raged across Luzon dumping a reported 34 cm of rain, equivalent to a month’s worth of rainfall, in just 6 hours, more than 200 have been reported dead and nearly 300,000 displaced from their homes.

    For a quick answer to this pressing question, here’s a list of some very important information for Filipinos everywhere to take part in the relief efforts for Typhoon Ondoy victims:

    From the National Disaster Coordinating Council – http://ndcc.gov.ph/home/

    TS Ondoy cash donations may be deposited to the NDCC Donated Funds current account (Philippine Currency-Peso) #0-00149-435-3 (with shift code: DBPHPHMM Account #36002016), Development Bank of the Philippines, Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo Branch, Camp Aguinaldo, QUezon City, Philippines.

    Now is certainly the time to use the power of social media to help our fellow Filipinos who have been badly affected by Typhoon Ondoy.  I recently posted the question “What can we do to help the victims of Typhoon Ondoy?” and if you have any relevant information or any creative idea that can be of help to victims of Ondoy, please take the time to share them.

    Our news editors also posted this question, “Do you think the RP government is doing enough to help with Typhoon Ondoy’s relief efforts? Yes or no, why?”.  According to National Disaster Coordinating Council’s Anthony Golez, the system and local government units are “overwhelmed,” and are not used to massive relief operations.  If you have personally witnessed this and you have seen how they can further improve their rescue operations, then please share your thoughts and opinions.

    Just check Yahoo! Philippines News for more updates about the relief efforts, for pics of Typhoon Ondoy’s aftermath, check out Flickr and this blog post for details on how you can help.  Thanks so much everyone!  I’m so proud to be Pinoy right now!  God bless!
