POSTING NIKKO'S WORDS (Typhoon Aftermath)


Blog Posted:11/11/2013 7:38:00 PM
Our own dear Nikko posted this, under her poems......but I was so afraid that it would be lost in the multitude of postings.  So I'm going to "borrow" her words, and post them here, hoping more of you will see it. Please read, and please, please  if there is even some small way you can help, do it, they need us all. Thank you!...... this is from her poem section:

Heartbreak over Yolanda: Link on how to help typhoon victims in the Philippines, thank you
I hope that it's ok that I am posting a link here on how to help the people who have been affected by typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda)It is a link from Yahoo, which sort of consolidated links/ways in which one can help, be they be from the Philippines or in another country.This is in hopes that  I could reach out to even just one person who wants to help in any means that they can... Seeing the devastation of the typhoon, not only in Tacloban, but in so manyother areas in central Philippines as well, such as in other areas of Leyte, and other parts of Eastern Samar, and I cannot wrap around my head the force and strength of that typhoon. I cannot even begin to comprehend the horror that these people are goingthrough right now, with the loss of lives and destruction and I can't help but also cry, just so overwhelmed, what more for those who were in the path? Somehow though, I feel that my tears won't do anything to help alleviatethe pain and despair.We all have heard about how every little bit can help, and I am holding on to thatas well...We have a word in Filipino-- "bayanihan", which pertains to the "coming together"of each person to help a certain cause. This also comes from the root word, "bayani" which translates to "hero".You can be a hero in somebody's life, in your own way, and I think thisparticular disaster is calling all the heroes it can gather.Tragic moments like these bring out something in us-- a solidarity that goes beyond borders and friction, where the pain is shared and compassion, empathy become  palpable...tangible.I know I type in too many words right now but it is one of my ways of coping, not even sure it this makes sense.As I type this, there have been updates about another tropical depression (Zoraida) that is headed along the similar path that Yolanda took...how I pray and hope that these placesbe spared... I am grateful that Haiyan weakened as it reached Vietnam,and that they have prepared well for it.Please continue praying for the Philippines, for those who have been affected,to be given strength, patience and courage.Rebuilding their lives could take a long time, but if we can help in some way, it would mean so much to them. Maybe we can try to counter the destructionwith the outpouring of support and care. For all those who have sent positive thoughts, prayers, concern, donations,in behalf of my fellow Filipinos, I would like to thank You from my heart.http://ph.news.yahoo.com/reliefph-operations-for--yolandaph-135933279.htmlhttps://www.wfp.org/donate/typhoon-philippines-a
Some
of you have asked about one of the best ways to give funds for relief efforts,
and Chris (Aechtner) mentioned Doctors Without Borders (DWB) in his comment on
my post, and he seems so familiar with their efforts and as I looked into their
website, I hope that more people support them. Thank you so much, Chris, for
bringing light to this organization, I have heard of them before (mainly in
passing), but did not know much about it.
I
know that there will come a time when the influx of pleas for help will die down
(not just for this current tragedy, but in so many areas around the world), and
most of our lives will go back to the normal humdrum-- but hopefully we won't
forget that there are always so many others in need of our help, sad to say,
they're not just always on the front pages and are easily forgotten-- but there
are those who continue to help-- maybe we can also do our share to help those
who are helping.
Here
are a couple of links for Doctors Without Borders:
these
would be two links though, one is an option for a one-time donation that can be
specific for
the
Philippine relief effort (one can choose the option of restricting the donation
to that cause)
https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/onetime.cfm?
and
the another link for those who would want to support DWB in general, where
several options are available, either a monthly donation or a one-time
donation.
https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/?
Again,
thank you so much for all the support and kindness. God bless everyone.

Just to let you know that I live in the visayas region but before and after the typhoon I called my family and they are all safe. my hometown is safe..thanks God..but in some places are affected that's why many organizations here in thailand are doing everything to help our kababayans. Many thanks to many nations who helped us in times like this.Please continue to pray for our nation. Thank you so much from the bottom of the heart. Thanks God Nette, Nikko and Leonora's family are all safe. God bless you all.

    Me again-- for our Canadian friends, I would also like to mention here how the Canadian government will match donations given by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities. This is ongoing until December 9, 2013. Thank you so much to the Canadian government for their generosity. Here's the link for it http://www.acdi-cida.gc.ca/acdi-cida/acdi-cida.nsf/eng/HEL-111012596-P4H ---- For those who want to donate to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) --- https://msf.donorportal.ca/MSFEN/Donation/DonationDetails.aspx?L=en-CA&G=21&F=545&T=GENER -- thank you very much!

    Thanks, Carrie! This is really heartbreaking. I never imagined that this was going to happen. Me, myself, is sick for two months now, but I can't help just to sit here and see my fellowmen suffering that way. No food, electricity and connections in Tacloban, which was the most affected areas. Can't stand watching the daily news. It kills me seeing a lot of children crying out of hunger that are still in the area. Good thing that donations from all over the world are now coming in, specially the presence of US soldiers which I think is more helpful, for our fast recovery. Help us in praying and in faith. I am very pleased that despite the odds, God is still letting us feel that His love is unconditional, through the cooperation of each and everyone. Thanks to all the soupers who are extending their support to our country, The Philippines! Take care guys! Be safe, Carrie! I love you all from the bottom of my heart! Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    My heartfelt thank you again for putting this as a blog, Carrie! I am hoping with you that more people get to read this than from my own page, and more people definitely responded here--- every little bit of help counts-- sorry mind is quite mush now, but want to say something about how ripples go far. Thank you again!

Most of all, we have to pray even more for God is the only answer, that will save us amidst the storm. Be safe. Dobleng-ingat, kapatid! Mahal tayo ng Diyos! Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    I'm really glad that your family and loved ones are safe, Leonora-- it's truly heartwarming how everyone (even kids and those who are less fortunate) are coming together to help out-- there have even been some tourists, who instead of going on vacation, decided to go to the affected areas instead.

    I especially thank my dearest sis & bff,Linda,Carrie, Andrea, Rhonda, Deb, Becca & everyone here & to my dearest co-Fil. Poets, Nikko & Nette. You, my dear Nette & Nicko with your family & my family & all our other friends there are always in my loving thoughts & prayers.

    My heart is bleeding right now about the great loss (life, property etc) in our country today caused by this cruel typhoon. I thank God, my family& relatives who're in Luzon were safe & so with the other Filipino friends of mine here esp. Nette and Nikko. On behalf also of all Filipinos, my heartfelt thanks to all of you my dearest poet friends for your loving thoughts, prayers & for your unwavering support to us esp. to our dearest sisters & brothers who're badly affected/devastated by the typhoon in Visayas.

    Thank you so much Carrie, for re-posting what I wrote-- your desire to help is really touching and I am so grateful that you, along with so many others, have shown so much support for the Philippines. It is heartbreaking to see the devastation of the typhoon, but it is also heartwarming to see how people around the world are helping us. As we say over here, "Bangon, Pilipinas" -- "Arise, Philippines" and we are going to do just that, with the aid around the world. I know that there are still so many problems along the way, but so many are helping, giving much hope. Hopefully, all the aid that is being given is reaching the victims, put into use.

    thank you, Carrie I send a donation to the Philippines, this past Sunday. I followed the news and prayed for my friends... I'm still offering prayers to all my friends out there.. I will continue to support and care... I just wish we could donate clothing shoes, and unwanted items.... I know many of us are ready to hand out unneeded material. Nikko, you are in our prayers... I'm sad to hear of all the sadness around you...love...Linda.

    Thank you, pd for all the prayers, support and care-- yes, so many are lacking basic necessities over there-- sad to say looting has also occurred there. I'm not sure who you can send these items to, but maybe there are local churches/orgs that are accepting items to be shipped to the affected areas? I'll try to ask around. Thank you!

    NIkko is such a kind hearted soul and I know the devastation in her country is so heart breaking for her. Yes, I will contribute through my church to aid them. And I'm keeping those dear people in my prayers. Thanks for caring, Carrie.

    As always nikko thinks only of others, at least if she sent the message we know she's alive!! I have had her in my thoughts all day. National public radio said the airport is NOT open yet so it's very hard to know what to do. From past disasters finding the proper place to send money is actually best. If anyone thinks they might know the best place to get the funds to please post it.

    yes there has been so much aid being given but not all of them are reaching the victims, sad to say-- there are still communication and logistics problems. Yes, it is best to look deeper into the organizations that we are donating to, to make sure that these funds reach the intended purpose. Pls see links above. Thank you!
