Preen is collecting calls for donations to help out those in need

Just a week after Typhoon Rolly devastated Catanduanes and nearby areas, another destructive typhoon struck the country. With national government response lacking and many local government units left to fend for themselves, many of the survivors are calling out to the public directly to ask for assistance. Preen is collecting these calls for donations to help out those in need. 

Of course, there are *a lot* of people who have been affected by the typhoon, and logistically speaking, we probably wouldn’t be able to add all of them. Still, we can try anyways. We’ll be updating this article and subsequent Twitter thread throughout the next few days. You can also check out the extensive lists made by YouthRisePH, a coalition of different youth groups that have banded together to provide relief to the survivors affected by the recent storms.

Don’t forget, though: Private individuals should never have been considered as the first respondents, or the first people to turn to when disaster strikes. It should not be up to us to help out our countrymen on a national level. Times like these are what governments are for. Or at least, they should be.
