The recent storm that ravaged parts of Northern Mindanao and cities such as Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City have taken a tremendous toll on life and property. It’s an incredibly harsh natural disaster, and to hit the week before Christmas makes this particularly difficult to understand. If I were in better shape I would have figured out a way to help more, but for now, our family is simply providing donations to other organizations that are better equipped or suited to provide immediate assistance. If you are abroad or in the Philippines, and want to help, you might consider the Philippine Red Cross, here, or any other reputable organization of your choice. Thousands and thousands of kababayans in Mindanao need your help. Thank you!!!
