Manila is flooded, and here’s how you (and we, Mindanaoans) can help


It’s like Typhoon Ondoy all over again, with much of Manila totally flooded leaving thousands homeless. 

Our own struggle with Typhoon Sendong is still vivid in our minds, and a huge part of that vivid memory is how Manila has swiftly rushed to our aid in our darkest days. 

It is only right that we give back.

So, I’m going to paste some information on how we can give back the love and support that they have given us.  First, I’ll post how those from far away can bring much needed funds.  Then, I’ll post how we who live in Cagayan de Oro and other parts of northern Mindanao can do our part to help.  Deal?

Cash and online donations:


The main CCF church (we go to the CCF in Cagayan de Oro) accepts donations in both paypal and cash.  They’ll certainly put it to good use.
