Green Island Photowalk for a Cause

Pindot's fund raising event for Storm Pablo victims in the Philippines
December 14, 2012 Friday

With maximum sustained winds that reached 185 kph, Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) is the strongest storm to hit Mindanao in two decades. 'Sendong,' considered one of the deadliest cyclones to enter the country in 12 years, battered northern Mindanao in December last year, leaving 1,257 people dead and P1.6 billion damage in agriculture and properties. The death toll to tropical storm "Pablo" rose to 1,050 while the estimated damage to properties increased to P34.40 billion. Of the 1,050 dead, 694 have been identified. Some 838 remained missing while 2,662 were injured.

In this regard, Pinoy digital Photographers in Kuwait (Pindot) organized another photoshoot for a cause to assist our fellow countrymen.
