Update 2: The unified official hashtag for relief and rescue operations is #EarthQuakePH

Update 1:

If you’re an entrepreneur, hr or operations head of a company in the affected areas, here are some of the things you can do for the employees:

  • Allow them to utilize their vacation leaves.
  • Utilize the add-on services offered by HMOs if subscribed, i.e seminars of choice, whatever is the current need. At this time, dealing w/ stress and anxiety will do
  • Open up disaster response services for affected employees, if able. i.e. monetary assistance, medical assistance, engineering assistance, counseling assistance
  • Expedite processing of employee application for disaster related loans to  SSS & Pag-Ibig, if applicable



This morning, I woke-up with the news that Bohol, Cebu and the rest of Visayas were affected by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. We’ve been through a major earthquake in Luzon way back 1990, I was in college then. Baguio and some cities up north and central Luzon is a mess, not to mention the loss of lives and what the families went through during this period.

Initial footage shows century old churches flattened to the ground, and a few fatalities. It’ll take a few more days before we can get the extent of damage, meantime, since we are seas apart from our Visayan kababayans, here’s what we can do

  • PRAY– our efforts are bound by time and space, but the Almighty is not.
  • Don’t dare say it’s a judgement or this incident is an act of GodIf you’ll play the religious game, encourage rather than condemn.
    The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full – John 10:10
    Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows – James 1:17
  • Set aside clothing, drinking water, non perishable and ready to eat foods, sanitary stuff (for babies and ladies)  for relief operations, but ensure you channel these to the right group.
  • Volunteer  for relief operations if your schedule and resources permits.
  • Use a unified hash tag – I hope mass media and government will use THE unified hashtag #eartquakePH
  • DO NOT post your selfie pics and product endorsement on the commonly used hashtags – let’s use social media for social good.
  • Validate info before sharing or RT-ing

If you can think of something else to help our kababayans, use the comment section below.
