Let's Help

Best Blogger Tips
Photos and videos alone can speak for themselves. Here in Manila, I, too, have experienced heavy rain and strong winds on that day, and to think it was only the tail of the storm Haiyan (local name: Yolanda) wreaking havoc. The droplets of rain was huge. You could feel how heavy the volume of water is in every raindrop once it hits your skin. It hurt. The wind was roaring and scary, my umbrella broke that day. In a matter of minutes, the streets gushed out flood. 

That day, I was lucky enough to get home from work safely. But other people weren't. To see those aftermath photos are heart breaking enough. One just can't feign blindness to the situation. (T_T)

The victims of the typhoon need our assistance.

There are a lot of ways to help. You can search various charitable organizations if you want to donate items or money. But me, I choose Caritas Manila. They are not as popular as other institutions but I trust them. They have been around for a long time, actively participating in relief operations.

It's horrible when things like this happen , the worst thing is that it is the very nature of the world which no one can know what will happen or not (as could have happened to the storm yolanda that how you name?... )
All my condolences to the families of the victims.... and from henceforth , hence keep looking forward slowly , I'm sure that many countries are sending aid , this morning I saw on the news that both the United States and Spain were the first two countries that have sent aid , and I like Spanish 'm sure my country and its people will not stop to help as much as you can in spite of the situation that exists here .. ^ ^ ..
Many force that can move on! ... much strength to the families of the victims and for all, because reconstruct what and lost , it will be difficult , but together we can.

Hi ladies, thanks for visiting. It is a sad situation but mankind always survives. :) So let's keep the hopes up, too. :)

I like that you donated to an organization that isn't so popular as the others. I think these smaller ones are just as valuable as the others...and honestly, I trust them more :)

Thanks for sharing the link!

Just found your blog, btw. I'm now following you through GFC and Bloglovin. Can't wait to see more of your posts!
