Google PR Dip

I just noticed the Google PR bar on my toolbar this morning and was dismayed to see this blog's PR at 0 from the previous PR3! Oh well! That's a downer indeed. As if all the recent disasters in the country were not enough bad news.

I'm still counting my blessings, though. That downturn isn't enough to make me give up this blog, even if I sometimes get too busy offline to update it faithfully.

Yes, I'll be writing on. Manila Mom will stay online.

I sure hope for better news on the next PR update, though.

Typhoon Pepeng Still Ravaging Northern Philippines; Aid Still Needed

As if Typhoon Ondoy’s devastation was not enough, Typhoon Pepeng followed close on its heels and proceeded to ravage the northern part of the Philippines left untouched by Ondoy.

In a seemingly surreal development, Typhoon Pepeng went to the end of the archipelago then did a u-turn and returned. It is still in the northern provinces, moving slowly and wreaking more havoc along the way. Many areas are underwater, with houses submerged to their roofs. Several dams have had to release water, adding to the floods. Evacuees are crowded into emergency relocation sites.

The Philippines is still reeling and is being hit again and again while the people are already down and defenseless. People are without food, shelter, clothing and medicines, with their means of livelihood taken away from them, as well. We appeal for help from our neighbors. Even the smallest contribution makes a difference. Thank you very much.

More Donations to Philippine Flood Victims Sought

We thank everyone around the world who have sent donations to the Philippines for our flood victims.

Please continue to spread the word, though, that more help is still needed. Millions of people are without food and shelter, not only in Metro Manila but also in the provinces. Many have also lost their means of livelihood. Many of the children and the elderly are sick.

Please course your donations through your local Red Cross.

Thank you very much.
