Since last few days the Typhoon Ketsana (locally called ‘Ondoy’) attacked Philippines, there are more than 300 people been killed and hundred thousands of people have to leave their home. Philippines flood already caused more than 400,000 refugees are looking for shelter in public buildings, schools, etc. There are more than 1.8 million people have been impacted, especially the residents in Manila. They really need your help and donation, at least the food and water is the must for them.

Now, they are worry another storm (Typhoon Parma) may attack the Philippines again, possible reach in another two or three days. If it is happen in next few days, then it really make the current situation become worse, because they predict the Typhoon Parma could be more powerful than Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy). Lets pray for them!

This is not only used to get more food, water, clothes, medicine, etc to them, and it can be used to rebuild their infrastructure, houses, etc, and help those hundred thousand people able to get through their difficult time.
