Organizations accepting donations for Typhoon PEDRING survivors

At least eight of the 17 regions of the Philippines were hit by Typhoon PEDRING (international codename: Nesat), displacing thousands of Filipinos because of the heavy rains and ensuing floods. As it leaves the country, we'll find out the full extent of the damages it caused and its corresponding health consequences. (PAGASA image above shows TY PEDRING moving through Luzon island and out to the West Philippine Sea, as of 10pm 27Sept.)

Scouring the Internet, here are some of the organizations who are now accepting donations for Typhoon PEDRING survivors. Kindly visit their respective websites and Facebook accounts and follow their Twitter accounts for updates as regards mechanisms for donation such as what items they need, where to drop off your donations, SMS or online donation systems, etc
