Students at Saint Paul University in Manila pack thousands of items to deliver to flood victims after Typhoon Ketsana. Now they await Typhoon Parma.

Caritas and the people of the Philippines are bracing for Tropical Storm Parma, which is expected to hit the country today. Over four million people live in the path of the severe storm. The Philippines was hit less than a week ago by Typhoon Ketsana, which caused some of the worst destruction in decades. Currently Parma is a stronger storm.

  1. would like to know if you also help locate missing person? do you accept volunteers for 2weeks at least and where is Caritas located and whom to contact?GOD BLESS YOU ALL

  2. The typhoons have passed and Filipinos once again showed their resilience amid tragedies. We definitely should be ready for such natural occurrences for they will happen to our country again, we just don’t know when.
