Paying it forward :)


We’re going for an Ondoy 2.0. Everywhere we look—from newscasts to social network updates; we see how every one of us struggled with the inclement weather. With Ondoy in 2009, the rains poured incessantly overnight. The next day we’re trapped in Waterworld. This year, Gener just got out of the country’s area of responsibility but the rains were still there. We thought they were just remnants. And just when we’re about to do our personal daily grinds, the waters swallowed almost all of our roads. Two more days and the sun still shied away from the skies. The murky waters are still there and the rains continued to pour. Most of us were trapped inside our houses, while several thousands of families are congested inside evacuation centers. A number of our fellows have already died. Rescue missions are on their way. Then we ask, when will this stop? We dunno yet.

For now, we press on and share the message of hope to all those in need and are suffering. We continue to encourage others to pray and to find ways in which we can help—the same spirit of bayanihan we showed when Sendong ravaged Mindanao in the dead of the night.

For those who would want to send in their help, the list of organizations conducting relief ops is compiled by GMA News and can be found through this link.

Also, Gerry Roxas Foundation is conducting its own relief ops. Here’s how you can contact them:


We hope that the waters would recede today and in the coming days. Also, we pray that should more typhoons or disasters come our way, we will be more than prepared. I know we all learned a lot of lessons because of this monsoon, albeit the hard way. I just hope those lessons do not remain inside our minds, it must be taken into heart and put into action.

Finally, let’s continue to pray for our kababayans who were heavily affected by the fickle weather. Oh and yes, let’s refrain the bickering (read: anti-RH advocates whotell us this is the wrath of God). It wouldn’t really help in any way.
