Donate Now And Help Save Lives!

Tropical Storm Sendong (international name: Washi) ravaged Mindanao, slamming it with devastating rains and unleashing flash floods and landslides that have left a horrifying trail of destruction. As of 12PM, the death toll has reached 720 (Cagayan De Oro 346, Iligan City 279, Bukidnon 47, Negros Oriental 37, Lanao del Norte 9, Compostela Valley 5, Zamboanga del Norte 3, Surigao del Sur 1). Most of the dead were asleep in the middle of the night on Friday when raging floodwaters pounded their homes from rivers and cascaded from mountain slopes following 12 straight hours of heavy rains in Mindanao. Drowning has been identified as the main cause of death

Sendong is the 19th tropical cyclone to lash the Philippines this year. As we wage this battle against disasters, we are appealing for immediate cash assistance to continue providing relief and recovery efforts for all affected communities. Red Cross is counting on your support to be able to provide food, non-food items (including kitchen ware, dinner sets, cleaning materials, latrines, medicine, livelihood programs and shelter) and our services to the most vulnerable Filipinos in the hardest hit cities and provinces
