Faith in Humanity RESTORED! #YolandaPH #reliefPH #rescuePH

hello-beloved-readers-blue1Good morning, Manila!

Despite Metro Manila not being greatly affected from the Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Typhoon Haiyan), we’re still experiencing heartbreaking news from its damages, most especially in Tacloban and Samar. However, donations have been coming from various places to aid and give relief to those affected. What really brightened my morning was the fact that I read that over 2 BILLION PESOS came from foreign donations. Yes, my beloved readers, BILLIONS. That’s probably one of the largest amounts I’ve ever seen being donated to the Philippines. I have done my research and verified that the said amount is true and here is my proof: 

THE FIRST FOUR ARE THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS DONATED

DENMARK DONATES OVER 2,000,000 PHP

Now, when I looked this up, I came across this Filipino Danish Center Facebook Page which led me to a Danish news center webpage that had video reports on Typhoon Haiyan. Although I can’t understand Danish, I believe that there were announcements of 10,000,000 Danish Krones pledged to be donated to Philippines from the Danish government. When I looked it up, I only came across of an official pledge of 300,000 Danish Krones. That is still a large amount nonetheless and each donation will still be a big help.

Even Australia is making its efforts to help out even more.Australia cares Yolanda Philippineshttps://www.care.org.au/haiyan-donate

It’s very heartwarming to read about these good news in light of the devastating ones we’ve been seeing recently because of Yolanda. So many has been making efforts to continue giving aid and relief to those affected. I’ve read in one clipping that Kris Aquino alone has donated 400,000PhP in response to Lucy Torres-Gomez‘s cry for help on Instagram (click here for the clipping), and was also one of the first to respond.

Another local donation I’ve read was that of De La Salle University Manila. Meralco made a public announcement of their 100,000PhP donations. dlsu donates to yolanda victimshttp://inagist.com/all/399531438065721345/?utm_source=inagist&utm_medium=rss

I’ve read that AT LEAST 10,000 lives were already lost to Super Typhoon Haiyan and that about 70-80% of the buildings in the area in the path of Haiyan in Leyte province was destroyed. According to rappler.com based from the DSWD as of 12nn Sunday, November 10, more than 2.1 million familes are affected and this equates to around 9.53 million individuals. Let us continue to pray for and help out those affected by this super typhoon. I know that our country will recover from this quickly just like how we’ve been doing so in the past. It’s rather flattering that the entire world has now acknowledged the Filipino spirit.

AHON, PILIPINAS! http://waterproofph.tumblr.com/

Pay no heed to those negative posts about God’s wrath towards the Philippines. That is, without a doubt, infinitely false. There’s a special place for those kind of people. Bad vibes go away~

Lastly, I’m in awe of ABS-CBN News reporter, Atom Araullo, for braving Yolanda/Haiyan, the world’s most powerful typhoon this year. He even trended worldwide. Hands down to you, Sir! 🙂 Atom Araullo Philippines ABSCBN

Stay safe and warm, my beloved readers!
