I am, like every Filipino at the moment, heartbroken over the devastation wrought by Typhoon Yolanda. Amid the pain and the difficulty of making sense, dealing with, and overcoming, we always have to think of something we can do to help out – in our little way – and I would like the share the initiatives of hiking clubs and groups of mountaineers which you may want to support. This is an incomplete list – please help me by sharing information about other initiatives. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
