Typhoon Ondoy (International name: Ketsana) has
devastated millions of Filipinos in the Philippines



Last Saturday (September 26, 2009) typhoon Ondoy roared across the northern Philippines near Manila, dumping more than a month’s worth of rain in just 12 hours.
Nearly 300,000 people were affected by storm, including some 47,000 people who were brought to about 100 schools, churches and other evacuation shelters, officials said.

With a little effort and helping out, we can give aid and assistance to those in need faster.
