Manila Flood Relief
How To Help The Victims of Typhoon Ondoy
The picture below shows Filipinos working together to move needed supplies to families hit hardest by the flooding.
September 25 & 26, tropical storm Ondoy (a.k.a. Ketsana) dropped a month's worth of rain in 24 hours. Waters rose quickly, trapping people on their roof tops or in their vehicles. Families were separated, caught on opposite sides of the Pasig River. Hundreds died. Many thousands left homeless.
