Rain Love On Manila: Help The Philippines Recover From Ondoy / Ketsana








No travel posts for now as my country struggles to rebuild itself after Tropical Storm Ondoy/Ketsana.

On September 26, 2009 Tropical Storm Ondoy hit Manila, capital of the Philippines. To date, it has taken at least 300 lives and have displaced over 400,000 Filipinos.



Relief and rescue operations are ongoing - the fortunate ones whose homes and families were not affected by the typhoon have been manning these operations since the beginning of the week. I helped out last night and it was amazing to see so many people actively and passionately trying to help those in dire need in these times of tragedy.

After the Philippines, Ketsana also ravaged Vietnam and Cambodia. The ancient city of Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is currently submerged in floodwater, along with other Vietnamese cities. Hoi An, being located beside a river, is generally prone to floods, and from what I know, it does experience flooding every year. Hopefully this means that they were better prepared for Ketsana.
