A few days ago Typhoon Sendong devastated my countrymen in Northern Mindanao that left 569 (and counting) dead and hundreds still missing and leaving in its path ravaged homes and properties.

  1. hi! thanks for posting the info.. I understand LBC is also accepting donations (not money) for the victims...

  2. @tndcallphilippines

    Thanks for the input.

  3. I felt so sad about this catastrophic incident, I hope that people of the Philippines will then realize the value of our dear nature… stop illegal logging before the whole country plunge as a river…

  4. Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
