Filipino Bloggers Vigilant with Typhoon Ondoy Floods

Filed as News on September 26, 2009 8:28 pm

UPDATE IV: Splashpress Media is conducting a network-wide fund drive to help the Philippine National Red Cross. We have badges and banners which you can embed into your blogs.

UPDATE III: This video will help give perspective on how ‘Ondoy’ affected the Philippines. Thanks to Carlos Celdran. Here is some information on the International donation efforts.

UPDATE II: Google Philippines has joined the efforts by helping large TV networks contextualize the disaster areas. The link to the team and the maps can be found here. If there are others missing, please contribute to this page.

UPDATE: You can proceed to Philippine Aid for donations and more information about the Ondoy aftermath. So far, the site has raised USD $6,000.00 in donations from the International community. Thank you very much!

Hi, this is Jayvee Fernandez, chief editor of Splashpress Media. As you may have witnessed in mainstream media, the blogs, and Twitter (we are trending), the Philippines (where I’m from) has been hit by the worst flood in recent history because of typhoon ‘Ketsana’ / ‘Ondoy.’ The media has labeled this an epic flood since 1967. One month’s worth of rainfall in the span of 6 hours. It is so epic, it has its own Tumblr account.

Dock

As I write this entry from a safe refuge, I cannot say the same for many other citizens and blogger friends who have had their material possessions, including cars, washed away. A detailed account can be read here, courtesy of Manolo Quezon.

The local blogging community has been adamant and vigilant disseminating information about relief centers, hotline numbers, donations and other such efforts through Facebook, Twitter, and our other local social networks (we’re glad that most still have Internet, despite cellular networks conking out). it is during times like these when we realize how powerful social media can be in the absence of conventional networks.

Details on how to help after the jump.

How to help

If you are not from the Philippines and wish to send donations you can do so through the TXTPower PayPal address.

You can also donate directly to the Philippine National Red Cross in various ways.

Donations are of course purely voluntary but I feel the need to post this here as it would be against my conscience to sit back and do nothing. Thank you. Your donations, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. If not for the blogs and social media, we would suffer bigger losses.

    As per people of Makati, we never saw Mayor Binay’s (Mayor Binay was actually enjoying playing badminton at The Zone, Makati) barangay people doing rounds in Brgy Olympia which is one of the badly hit areas of Makati. It took Brgy Olympia up to Tuesday afternoon to get it dry completely. Ganito kami sa Makati ngayon….

    Unlike before, Olympia then takes overnight to get it dry. Unlike before, Mayor Yabut then was very visible in Makati in times of calamities and emergencies helping residents. Unlike before, Brgy people then coordinates with the National and local govt to ask for assistance. Oo nga pala, sorry, we saw them nga pala erecting toldas for birthday party last Sunday on one of the streets, nawala na lang sila agad pag kakain at pag ka inum, samantalang kaming biktima ni Ondoy ay umasa na lang sa pagiging self-sufficient in order to survive.

    O God , please help and remind us that you are always beside us while our country recovers from this disaster. Protect us from any harm and danger in this time of calamity and in the coming days. Lord, you revealed that you are in total control of everything on this earth.

    God be the glory, Amen!!!

    MAYABANG NA NETWORK
    sana naman wag ng manira ang tv patrol sa gobyerno para lang ipakita na magaling ang sagip kapamilya… me episode ang tv patrol na ipinakita na hindi pa naabot ng tulong ng gobyerno ang isang lugar at pagkatapos noon ay ipinakita na sila ay namimigay ng mga relief… tandaan sana nila na ang ipinamimigay nilang relief ay galing sa mga tao at institution na nais tumulong at ipinagkatiwala lang sa kanila… wag nilang solohin ang credit….

    LASING SA KASIKATAN NA HOSTESS
    sa episode din na iyun sinabi ni Kris na kung hindi pa daw siya nangalampag at nag-ingay hindi dadami ang mga donations… dahila sa kanya ay nagbigay ang mga sponsors niya… ibig ba niya sabihin ay napilitan lang ang mga donors… gumising sana siya… baka makarma siya dahil masyado nang nalalasing sa pakiramdam niyang sikat siya…

    bakit ang mga pondo na ibinigay ng mga mamamayan para sa kampanya ni noynoy ay ibinigay niya sa mga nasalanta. ibinigay iyon sa kanya ng mga mahihirap at ordinaryong mamamayan upang huwag na siyang manghingi pa sa kung kanikanino na mangungutangan siya ng loob. subalit parang baliwala pala sa kanya ang mga adhikaing ito ay basta basta na lang niya ipinamigay.
    paano naman iyon mga taong nagbigay sa kanya para sa adhikain ng malinis na kampanya, binalewala niya. sa katayuan niya ay maari naman siyang makatulong at makapanghingi ng donation para sa mga nasalanta o kaya ay galing mismo sa bulsa niya. hindi naman niya kailangan ang tulong ng ordinaryong tao at balewala sa kanya ang nararamdam nila. at saka marahil ay nanghihinayang siya kung mismong sa bulsa niya manggagaling ang donasyon. kung iyung mga tauhan nga niya sa asyenda luisita ay pinagdadamutan niya. sa palagay niyo ba ay hindi niya gagawin iyon sa bansa.

    I agree with Michael Aguilar,.. ABS CBN news team should not insinuate that the Government do lapsed in their rescue and relief activities and then boast what they did instead… Haler! excuse me, the money they got also came from the people di ba? And besides, as a private sector na kumikita rin through the mamayan, responsibility din nila and tumulong sa mga Ondoy victims…. even without the hypocrite Kris, private sector would really help the flood victims cause they have that SOUL…

    I think it’s really unfair if we’ll blame the National Government, we have seen them work,. I can’t even imagine if they could sleep well thinking about the safety of the flood victims.. I saw how tired Sec. teodoro was and also some of the cabinet members especially members of the Phil. Army who helped in the rescue operations..

    I want to reiterate this to everybody… When typhoon Frank hit our province and our was greatly flooded, we never ever did blame anyone,. The delivery of relief goods were late and rescue efforts were not that overwhelming compared to what the volunteers and the government did during typhoon Ondoy… What we all did, we just helped each other and even thanked the President for the assistance.. Our local media did not bash the government cause every time they do that, the people especially the flood victims would text them, telling them to stop…

    Why blame anyone? The disaster happened because mother nature cannot bear what we have done to her…. Please everyone open your eyes and let’s move protect our mother nature!

    thanks rose for agreeing with me

    A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE
    Nagreact si kris sa kumakalat na text message na hindi daw agad ipinamimigay ng sagip kapamilya ang mga relief goods at nakatambay lang ang mga artista. Abinulaslas ni kriis na siya daw at pamunuan ng ABS-CBN ay nagagalit, naghihimutok at nasasaktan sa mga ganoong comment at pamimintas sa kanila. Ngayon siguro ay alam na nila ang pakiramdam ng sa gitna na adhikain ng mga institution ng gobyerno sa pagtulong sa mga tao ay patuloy pa rin ang pamimintas nila at paghahanap nila ng butas o kasiraan.

    MATATAWAG KAYANG KARMA SA KANILANG NETWORK ITO
    Sa palagiang pagsasagawa nila ng komentaryong pagbabalita, na ang maririnig at makikita na lamang ay puro paninira at paghahanap nila ng kasiraan sa gobyerno, marahil ay nahahawa na rin ang karamihan sa kanilang mga tagasubaybay. Gaya na rin ng sinabi ni sec angelo reyes na wala ka ng suotan sa mga mamamahayag na ito, “damn if you do and damn if you don’t” ,iyon na marahil ang nagiging ugali ng mga tao. ngayong sila ang nakaranas nito, alam na siguro nila ang pakiramdam. Dapat na siguro nila baguhin ang style ng kanilang pamamahayag. Sabihin pa at kung ano ang nakikita ng mga tao sa araw-araw ay iyon din ang gagayahin nila.

    AGAWAN SA RELIEF GOODS
    Ipinakikita sa tv kung paano mag-agawan habang ipinamimigay ang mga relief goods. Nakakaawa ang mga babae at matatanda na dahil sa kanilang kahinaan ay naiipit at hindi agad nakakakuha ng relief goods, minsan ay ala pang nakukuha. Ang ipinagtataka ko lang ay ang mga kalalakihan na nakikipag-agawan at nakakakuha ng higit pa sa isang balot, bakit kaya hindi na lang sila tumulong sa manpower para malinis ng lugar nila. pabayaan na lang ang kababaihan na pumila o kaya ay mag-ayos ng mga relief goods at mag serve sa mga lalaking magtratrabaho. Sa halip kasi na nagpupursige silang mag-ayos ng kanilang lugar upang agad makabangon ay inuubos nila ang oras nila sa paghihintay ng mga relief goods. Ano kaya ang ibig nilang mangyari, iaasa na lang nila sa mga volunteers at gobyerno ang pag-aayos ng lugar nila? Saying naman ang lakas nila kung hindi mapapakinabangan nila at ng kanilang komunidad. Nagiging ugali na nga kaya ng karamihan ng Pilipino na ipasa ang obiligasyon at responsibilidad nila sa gobyerno o sa ibang tao kahit meron naman silang magagawa para sa kanilang sarili.

    wag na kayung magulat, ang main aim lng ng channel 2 is to criticize the government, it’s an open secret. it’s still a fact that manugang ni erap ang isa sa mga lopezes, kya ganun tlaga, though i think hindi nakkialam si erap s binabalita nila. but they were never impartial, kaya nga ang motto nila is “panig s katotohanan,” since they can’t deny anymore na may pinapanigan sila. sbi nga ni korina, ok lng nman un dahil tao ka rin at mayron kang pinapanigan. as part of media, alam ko mali un.

    when i saw them openly criticize the relief operations, grabe ako sa asar. tlagang ngiinsinuate silang mgalit ang tao eh. that is never ever a good thing. nkkondisyon ang tao msyado. i hve army relatives and nagngingitngit ako sa galit na binabastos lng ng reports ng dos ang militar at coast guard. ska na sila mamulitika pagkatapos nito!!! kaasar talaga! kung gusto nila interviewhin n lng nila ung mga politiko na nglaho s mainstream nung bumagyo, kung gusto nilang mamulitika…

    this is a once in a lifetime disaster, no one’s prepared for this. so screw theem!

    I’m from the Army. Upon receipt of orders, I immediately left my family to help the Typhoon Ondoy victims in Marikina. Some of our men who left their families died in line of duty while rescuing others. We did our best job to help. I’ve read so many negative comments about us but this will not demoralize us. Now that Typhoon Pepeng is on its way out, we are still standing by waiting orders for immediate deployment to extend again any kind of assistance even though the houses of some of our troops are still submerged in flood waters. We hope our countrymen will appreciate what your Armed Forces (which is also part of our gorvernment) is doing even with limited resources and capabilities. We will not be distracted by other people’s negative comments and we will just concentrate on our sworn duty because . . . we are your ARMY.

    PAGTANAW NG UTANG NA LOOB
    sa mga kababayan natin sundalo at sa kanilang mga pamilya, nagpapasalamat kami sa mga ginagawa ninyo para sa bayan, lalong lalo na sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo. ganoon na rin sa iba pang mga sangay ng gobyerno na nagsakripisyo sa nagdaang sakuna.

    SILENT HEROES
    maraming individual na nagtratrabaho sa gobyerno ang nagsakripisyo at nalagay sa panganib ang kanilang buhay habang ang pamilya nila ay naiwan kahit na nasa bingit din ng peligro. hindi sila napapansin dahil hindi naman sila ang focus ng attention ng media. kundi ay ang ipinakikita nila ay ang pamimigay ng kanilang network ng mga relief goods at ang kanilang paghingi ng donations kaya sa mata ng mga tao ay ang media ang sikat lalo na’t meron pa silang ipinakikitang mga artista.

    ME MGA NABRAINWASH NA KASI
    nakakalungkot nga lang sabihin na ang media ay hindi masyadong napapapansin ang mga ginagawa pagsasakripisyo ng mga sundalo at iba pang naglilingkod sa gobyerno, lalo na ang kanilang panganib na sinusuong kapag ginagampanan nila ang kanilang tungkulin. ang nais ko lang sanang ipoint out ay iyung ginagawa ng media na ginagalit ang tao laban sa gobyerno dahil me mga areas pa na hindi naabot ng tulong at pagkatapos noon ay ipapakita ang kanilang ginagawang pamimigay ng relief goods. sa kasamaang palad ay marami na ngang tao ang nabrainwash na nila. ang isip ay masama ang gobyerno at ang bida ay ang media. nakakalungkot lang talaga.

    SINO ANG PURO DAKDAK
    hindi naman lahat ng nagsusulat dito ay puro pagpuna lang ang ginagawa. minsan ay hindi lang napigilang ilabas ang nararamdaman lalo na kung nakikita ang maitim na intention at ginagawa ng ibang mga tao. galing din ako sa mga medical mission na ginagawa sa rizal. bukod sa serbisyo na ginagawa namin ay nagdonate din kami. minsan mapapansin maoobserbahan natin sa gitna ng mga pagtulong sa mga tao, sino ba ang nagtratraboho, sino ang gumagamot, sino ang nagrerescue, mga media ba? sino ang bida? iyung bang mga maglilingkod sa gobyerno na ginagawa ang kanilang tungkulin o ang mga media at artista na nakafocus sa kamera.

    marami naman ang nagtulungan sa nakaraang sakuna. tulung tulong naman lahat para kapakanan ng mga nabiktima. ang pangit lang ay ang palabasin na masama ang iba para ipakita o ipagyabang ang sarili or shall we say take all the credit. malaki nga ang donasyon na nakuha ng mga foundation ng mga network, marami rin silang naipamahagi sa mga biktima. everybody did their share, ang masama nga naman doon ay ang ipinalalabas nila na walang ginagawa ang gobyerno. unfair nga naman iyon sa kanila. at parang napakahipokrita naman iyung sasabihin ng media na lahat ay nagtutulungan kahit ano pang network, kasama ang pribadong sektor walang politikahan pero biglang palalabasin nilang galit ang mga tao sa gobyerno dahil wala pang tulong na nakakaabot sa isang lugar. parang gusto nilang magalit ang tao sa gobyerno dahil wala itong silbi tapos ipapakita nila ang kanilang ginagawang pamimigay ng relief goods. napanood ko rin iyun at nakakafrustrate. so unfair.

    The Philippines is still in need of more donations for the victims of the 2 recent typhoons which hit the country the past 2 weekends.

    An American Entrepreneur already offered help by giving away $50 each to chosen people in the Philippines who are personally extending help to their own relatives, family members, friends, neighbors, and even strangers who are greatly affected by the strong storms. He even created a site that gave way for soliciting help around the globe. He has started the movement. Let us offer help in any way we can.

    No amount is too little when it comes from the heart.

    Please visit:

    i agree with michael aguilar… You are very right sir! Media seems unfair,! And it is a very funny and definitely useless report showing how artistas helped in the relief operations for the victims of typhoon ondoy…

    There are some things that actually keeps me wonder. Kris could sleep well, work well and think less about the safety of her family (during the flooding) but a rescuer let’s say from the Phil. Army sacrificing his life to save others while his family is also in danger. Now, who’s more worthy to be acknowledged by media?

    A cabinet secretary who cannot fully sleep thinking how we could surpass this tragedy and a tv anchor who speaks mostly about government lapses,. Whom must we believe and thank for?

    The working government which despite limited resources, facilities and manpower is doing everything to cater the needs of the flood and other calamity victims; and a TV network which only concentrate on the negative side of the government and making themselves a hero, whom should we consider sensitive?

    It’s time for us to meditate and THINK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR OUR COUNTRY RATHER THAN WAIT AND EXPECT MORE WHAT OUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR US…

    yes ma’am rose, tama ka. nationalism should be promoted. hindi dapat umasa palagi ang tao kung ano ang magagawa ng gobyerno para sa kanila kundi mag-isip din kung ano ang magagawa natin para sa bayan sa abot ng kanyang makakaya. simpleng disiplina lang sa pang-araw-araw na gawain gaya ng pagtapon/pagsegregate ng basura, pagtitipid sa kuryente, pagsunod sa batas at regulasyon sa trapiko ay malaking bagay na sa bayan at kalikasan. wala naman itong kinalaman kesyo mahirap o mayaman ang isang tao.

    MEDIA HAS THE POWER
    hindi naman ako galit sa media. napapansin ko lang iyung mali at hindi makatarungan nilang gawain. malakas ang impluwensya nila sa tao. maari nila hulmahin ang susunod na mga henerasyon sa pagpapalaganap ng impormasyon. maarin din nilang lasunin ang isipan ng tao sa paghahayag ng maling o baluktot na impormasyon. isa itong kapangyarihan na maari nilang gamitin o abusuhin. kaya ang panalangin ko na lang ay marealize sana nila ang kanilang ginagawa at maging responsable sila sa hawak nilang kapangyarihan. ang ipromote sana nila ang mga tamang gawain, pagiging responsable, nasyonalismo, pagkakaisa at pagtutulungan. tanggalin na nila sa isip ng tao na palaging naghahanap kung sino ang dapat sisihin.
