How You Can Help Victims of Tropical Storm Ketsana/Ondoy

UPDATE AS OF SEPT. 30: Due to rapid developments, I will no longer update this blog as there is now a centralized Google document (OndoyManila: List of Places to Donate). Pls. refer to that as it is updated on a real-time basis. I would like to thank all my readers who responded with generous hearts and donated/volunteered in whatever way. May God bless you abundantly.


As a public service for anyone who comes across my blog, I am posting below ways by which you can send money or goods in kind or volunteer to help in packing goods to assist the victims of the massive flooding that Tropical Storm Ketsana/Ondoy brought to residents of Metro Manila and surrounding provinces. This was my post on the flooding that took place yesterday, Sept. 26.

This post will be constantly updated on a day-to-day basis until the crisis passes. When some information needs verification, I will post this in RED while we look into it. While we will try to make the info as accurate as possible, pls bear with us if there are some logistics problems or wrong information as this is a list compiled from various sources. Feel free to post in the Comment Section any additional donation centers you may know of. Thanks!

    super thank you… couldn’t help much but spread the ways and methods to help the victims. Can’t sleep while others don’t have shelters and dry clothes on their body… really sad.

    the CFC(Global)Center is actually underneath the EDSA-Ortigas Flyover…
    Address is 349 Ortigas Ave. Greenhills East
    Mandaluyong, Philippines, 1554

    Also I believe All Petron stations are accepting donations. I think they were the first to announce on air (tv or radio) that they are accepting donations in all their stations.

    @Nikki – Thanks for the inputs. Will edit.
