Rescue PH

The Philippines need your help. After enduring the heavy rains of Tropical storm Gener, the Southwest Monsoon hit Metro Manila and neighboring provinces once again. It felt like Ondoy all over again. My parents actually tried going out of the house but all the streets were flooded. Thankfully, we were able to keep ourselves safe at home. No properties damaged, everything intact. But this isn’t the case for most Filipinos. It’s heartbreaking watching the news–seeing elderly people and young kids shivering under the rain, stranded people all over the streets. It has been reported that over 800,000 people and counting have been affected by the floods, their properties submerged in the flood. Most of them are either still stranded, waiting to be rescued or are currently housed in makeshift evacuation centers, with most if not all of their properties gone.

The amount of rain we experienced yesterday was already more than half of the average monthly rainfall…and it’s still raining as I type this.

    Hi Camille! I reblogged/ copied the info from this post to my blog. I’m overseas and trying to help out — I made decals to raise funds and all the proceeds will be donated to relief efforts. I need all the help I can get spreading the word, I would really appreciate your help. The decals can be found here: and my blog post is here: Thank you so much!

    Hi, Ms. Camille! Thank you for this. Me and my sisters were really planning to donate our clothes, and some of the blankets that were just filling up our closets and just takes up too much space. We didn’t know some hotlines until we saw your blog post. Thank you so much! :D

      Thankfully no. Even during Ondoy, our area didn’t get flooded. It’s just hard to go out because the neighboring streets are flooded. I hope you’re okay and safe!

    I’ll never forget how Red Cross helped me and my family survive before after being victims of fire. I support their causes, now and always.

    Thanks for posting this too, Camille! I support causes for us fellow Filipinos.

    Saddening indeed. Luckily we’re not flooded in our area and good thing this disaster happened gradually kaya na-prevent ang further damage and casualties unlike Ondoy dati where everything happened in the blink of an eye. Hoping all of these will come to an end soon. Let’s help in every little way possible and of course, PRAY. :(

    • itscamilleco

      I think we’re a little less complacent because of Ondoy. We’re already aware that certain things might happen. I’m hoping the weather will get better
