PHILIPPINES: How to help typhoon Sendong (Washi) victims

The typhoon-struck cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in southern Philippines continue to need urgent relief aid as people come to grips with the horrible death toll and as families continue to search for hundreds of others who are still missing.

For Filipinos abroad and our friends from other countries, Philippines-based international courier company LBC has announced it is now accepting donations in all its branches in the United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Spain and Italy.

Following is a list of drop-off points for relief aid, and conduits for monetary donation (credit/debit cards via Paypal, cash and cheque deposits and fund transfers).
