Operation: Ondoy (Ketsana)
After a month’s worth of rain poured in just 8 hours: more than 100 people are dead, four dozen souls are still missing, thousands stranded and millions are heart-broken. I’m happy that our family got away from the event relatively unscathed but the majority of Metro Manila thinks otherwise.
It’s time for you to help.
