How to Help in Case of Calamities

31 Jan

It was in September when I wrote about how a typhon became Mindanao’s unconventional promoter.

Month’s later, tropical storm Sendong came to prove natural disasters are no joking matter. It wasn’t as strong as Pedring but it still ravaged parts of northern Mindanao.

Storm Sendong

It has been over a month since the disaster but the victims are still struggling to recover.

Very recently, parts of Western Visayas was devastated by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake with several strong aftershocks. It left many misplaced, hungry, in bad shape, even traumatized.

There seems to be no end. Calamities are hitting our country one after another.

It’s a trifling thing. What is there we can do to help the least of our brethren stricken by misfortune?

Simply and kindly do anything of the following listed below:

Red Cross: to help, send RED to 4143 (Smart) and RED to 2899 (Globe).

* Smart subscribers may send financial help to the Philippine Red Cross through text. To donate, cellphone users should send RED to 4143. Valid donation amounts are 10, 25, 50 and 100 and will be charged to the subscriber’s prepaid load or postpaid bill.

* Globe subscribers may send help to Red Cross. Just text RED and send to 2899. Valid donation amounts are 10, 25, 50, 100 (For ex, RED 10).

SMART Subscribers

* Smart subscribers all over the country may send help to those affected by typhoon Sendong. Smart Money users can instantly transfer funds through their mobile phones to the official Baha Fund account number 5577 5130 6822 1104. Donors may also deposit cash to the same Smart Money account number in any Banco De Oro branch nationwide or through Hapinoy and Cebuana Lhuillier outlets.

* SMARTCares: Subscribers may donate to #Sendong victims via text. Just send RED to 4143. Valid donation amounts 10, 25, 50, 100.”

Globe Subscribers

Through GCASH, text DONATE and send to 2882.

Storm Sendong aftermath - Iligan

It really is better to help those in need rather than to be in need of help.

Calamities are bound to come, some stronger than others but if we stand together with untiring and helping hands, we can overcome any obstacle, any tremor, any hundred-foot waves, any zombie apocalyptic scenario!
