As a kind of bookend to the week here, the Philippines has been in the news all week as a result of some of “the worst floods to hit Manila and nearby provinces in four decades.”
If you remember, we started off the week with a story from Justin Calderon from his own trip to the country where he was treated with nothing short of spectacular hospitality. In lieu of payment for his article, he agreed to allow TheExpeditioner.com to make a donation on his behalf to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF where they will be “delivering more hygiene kits, essential medicines, water purification tablets, portable toilets and family kits containing blankets and soap to aid in relief efforts,” as well as further support and relief as the cleanup continues.
To make your own donation to the ongoing emergency relief efforts in the Philippines, please visit: www.unicefusa.org/donate/Philippines or call 1.800.4UNICEF.
