Relief Operations For Victims of Ondoy and Pepeng

Oct 3, 2009

I’ll be out of touch for the next three days, meaning that I’ll take a break from all the tweeting I’ve done for the past couple of days. But the relief operations in the Philippines will still continue, so let me just leave you a few links:

  • Help for Typhoon Ondoy Victims in the Philippines (via Google) – Compiles relevant information about the disaster, including a volunteer-maintained map of persons needing rescue and a list of relief organizations accepting donations.
  • OndoyManila – Contains a map of disaster areas, missing/found people database, as well as rescue and relief operations contacts. There is a form you can fill up if you want to help update the information on this site. If you want to help their team, you can send an email to typhoonondoy@googlegroups.com.
  • Ondoy Victim Directory – Database of missing people, collated by Ateneo Task Force Ondoy
  • Bayanihan Online – They collate messages (mainly via Twitter) on areas in need of volunteers, donations, transportation and relief goods. They also collate reports on abuse. (looting, red tape, etc.) You can help their team by leaving comments on their site, or via Twitter (@bayanihan_)
  • PAGASA website – For updates on Pepeng.
  • bicolanodevil at Twitter – If you are not happy with the frequency of reports by PAGASA. He also gives updates from other sources.
  • Sahana Forum – Online forum to help collate information. (I have to admit, it’s been a while since I was last active on an online forum.)
  • Tulong Tayo – Collecting information via text.
  • Embassy of the Philippines – For information on sending donations from overseas.
  • Department of Social Welfare and Development

If we all do our part, we can survive whatever storm comes our way.

Stay safe everyone! I’ll be back online on Tuesday.
