Empty Streets Special: A Prayer for the VIctims of Typhoon Ondoy

Posted 9:22 PM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,
Metro Manila has just experienced a calamity that is beyond words. I was lucky that my apartment - elevated as it is - only got about a foot of flood water. But, many of the others out there were less fortunate. There are so many victims to name and the after effects is still being felt.

Right now all I can ask of my readers is to please send a prayer for all of us. That is all we can do as we fight to recover what was lost and eventually start to rebuild. I also ask for prayers for those that have passed away all throughout this ordeal.

If you wish to help out here are the drop off points for donations: DROP OFF POINT

Here is a news coverage of Typhoon Ondoy. I have to apologize though as the news footage is in tagalog but the scenes should be more than enough to show you how much this Typhoon has affected our people:

It's a very touching scenario of the flood. You have a quite lucky situation. Count on my prayers and thoughts to the less fortunate.

My heart and prayers go for the victims of the flood. It's sad that our government cannot do anything to , at least, reduce occurrence of flooding the nation's capital. This has been a problem for years and nobody even takes the initiative to put structures to protect the city.

The news is all over the internet. I felt bad for our kababayan who are affected with the flood. My prayers and sympathy for the victims and family who lost their loveonesduring the flood. Glad you are fine. Prayers and god bless.

My sincere prayers go for the flood victims. Something like this can be prevented, if we only knew how to take care of our environment. Our government, on the other hand, should establish a strong infrastructre that would ward off flood and other calamities, rather than using the taxpayer's money to a lavish dinner.



Empty Streets said...

Thank you all so much for your support and prayers. This means a lot to everyone one of us that has been affected by the floods.

Please spread the word as this would truly help us out. My heartfelt thanks.

Metz

Hi Jackie and Kraye,

Thank you so much for your support. There are still over 300,000 people that have lost their homes and they will need all the help and support they can get. Muchos Gracias my Friends. xoxo

thank you so much for the support you guys have given to all of us. I pray that after this new storm has passed we can finally get back to our normal lives. My prayers also go to the indonesian victims of the quake and somoan tsunami victims. so many people dying in such a short span of time. Nature is such a powerful force and I guess she is reminding us to remember her.
