This week, the mountaineering community joins the rest of the nation in helping those who have suffered from last weekend’s Typhoon Ondoy. I know that many mountaineering clubs are planning relief efforts, missions, and other activities to help those in evacuation centers and areas that are still affected by the flood. Personally, I will be joining our Community Medicine unit in PGH will be in Cainta, Rizal this Friday to offer free medical services to the flood victims.
A lot of people are still asking: what can we do to help? If your mountaineering club or group is organizing an activity this coming weekend, please let us know. PinoyMountaineer.com will post a list of upcoming volunteer events tomorrow for everyone’s information. Instead of climbing this weekend (with a new storm brewing) – I think it’s a better idea to sign up in one of these.
