Special Donation Drive for Victims of Typhoon Ketsana

Please support the relief efforts

Dear Readers,

We are coming to you with a special request.  

At the end of last month, Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy) hit the Philippines and surrounding countries with devastating force, causing some of the most widespread damage seen in recent history. Metro Manila was besieged by the record-breaking flood levels and entire settlements have been displaced. Infrastructure and agriculture systems have been severely damaged on a broad scale. More than 700,000 families have been affected by this disaster: lives have been lost, homes have been destroyed, and clean water and electricity are still not available in many regions. The need for aid and reconstruction is urgent.

The extent of disaster which has affected the lives of 4 million people has not been highlighted by the Western media. 

Global Research Director Michel Chossudovsky was on location in Metro Manila and has visited the disaster area in Marikina. He has also been in contact with several organizations involved in channelling aid to the disaster areas.

In response to the overwhelming destruction caused by this storm, Global Research has made a commitment that all donations received between October 8 and October 15, 2009 will be forwarded to the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center in the Philippines to assist with critical and timely relief efforts.

We encourage all of our readers to make a contribution during this special donation drive and help to bring aid to the victims of Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy). All funds collected during this time will be sent to the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC).
