EYES HERE. To everyone who is actively participating in packing relief goods to be sent in Tacloban City/Leyte, please note of the following:
1.) DO NOT PACK NOODLES OR ANYTHING THAT NEEDS WATER. There is no water and electricity so it is impossible to consume this kind of food.
2.) PACK MEDICINES – most especially basic medicines (biogesic, bioflu, robitussin etc). Also if possible, includ medicine for surface wounds as many have been wounded because of the debris and fallen rooftops.
3.) PACK AT LEAST ONE BOTTLE OF WATER. People are raging for water (some have even become violent just for water). There is no source of water at all at any part of Tacloban.
4.) PACK CANDLES AND MATCHES – there’s no electricity for a minimum of two months so all people will need these.
5.) ENCOURAGE YOUR RESPECTIVE GROUP/ORGANIZATION TO DONATE BODYBAGS. Bodies are lying around the roads within the city and some of the places have already been filled up with bodies.
Thank you very much! Godbless!
Jekah Carillo Solar energy lights can also be an alternative to candles to prevent fires as mentioned by Glecil Barrera Paulo “Will be buying a solar energy kit for us to use back in Leyte. We discourage our grams to use candles, we’re afraid of any undesirable events to happen. There’s an affordable one in CDR-King which has rechargeable LED bulbs included and several phone connector tips too. This will be very useful as the outage there will run for more than a month..”
