Hard to believe but the photos below were taken in Cagayan De Oro 3 weeks ago. It was a shock when I turned on the TV to watch the news and saw the damage done by the typhoon. It looked as if part of Cagayan and Iligan were rice fields, submerged in brown murky water. With thousands of people dead…a thousand more in evacuation centers and hundreds still missing. I’m used to watching news about typhoons hitting areas in Luzon, but in Mindanao? What the hell is happening?
This is how CDO looked after the typhoon hit:
And to think we’re only a few days away from Christmas. Sad. CDO and Iligan needs all the help that they can get. Old clothes, bottled water, and ready to eat food will go a long way.

I’ve asked friends and colleagues to drop off their old clothes and other stuff at our apartment too. All of us in the house are from Mindanao so this is an issue that’s really close to our hearts. If you haven’t yet, donate now. Every peso, used clothing, and bottle of water helps.
Help CDO and Iligan now!
