It’s my birthday! Yay!
But, my country is definitely not in a celebrating mood. Tropical Storm Maring came into the PAR (Philippine Area of Responsibility) yesterday and has been raining down misery for most Filipinos. (Photos shown taken from yesterday up to a few hours ago).
Classes, offices and many operations have been suspended due to flood waters. Many major roads are impassable and loads of families have been displaced.
Luckily, my family and I are safe. So, for my birthday wish, I’m asking anyone and everyone to help. If you’re from the Philippines, please donate through local efforts. Donating canned goods, toilettries, blankets and alike are welcome. For people abroad, you can donate to the Philippine Red Cross.
As for me, as soon as it’s safe to go out I’ll be looking for places to volunteer if I can. Stay safe countrymen!
