God bless the Philippines

Another calamity has hit the Philippines. This time, the country was struck down south. Typhoon Sendong’s wrath was felt in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. Over the weekend, a friend tweeted that her pregnant sister, her husband and their dad had to leave their house and go to higher ground (bless the neighbor who let them stay in their house) because the house got suddenly flooded. They were not able to save anything except for a few articles of clothing :( And then we hear of hundreds of deaths and thousands missing people. They were all caught unaware of the flood, it all happened too fast and into the night.

The death toll is rising. People are getting hungry and sick. Clean water is running out. Every help counts.

God bless the Philippines.
