Typhoon Ondoy that hit the Philippines last Friday, Saturday and Sunday (September 25, 26 and 27) caused the most severe flooding in 42 years in the country. It affected a large part of Metro Manila, and Central Luzon and some portions of Southern Tagalog. Landslides occurred in upland areas of Rizal and in Arayat in Pampanga. More than 140 people died and many are still missing.
While many of our organization’s members are also victims and are still trying to cope with their difficult situations, KAISA KA, a women’s organization in the Philippines cannot just watch and wait for government’s and major private relief groups’ actions. The number of victims and the areas affected are just too massive for relief efforts to cover.
And so, KAISA KA is calls for donations, in kind and in cash and is directly doing relief work for flood victims of typhoon Ondoy. It is collaborating with other organizations under Oplan Sagip Bayan.
We ask for your understanding and support for this project.
