Palawan is a province located in the Philippines, and was known all over the world because of its idyllic horizon, mountain views, and white sand beaches. For years, it has been declared as the “Best Island of the World” by the international magazine Conde Nast because of its God-given beauty. Moreover, the Underground River at Puerto Princesa, Palawan was voted in 2012 by the global community as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World for being the longest navigable subterranean river on January 28, 2012. Prior to this it has also been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
However, last December 17, 2021, a typhoon destroyed its beauty and isolated the island from the whole country. Typhoon Rai, locally known as typhoon Odette, left the central and northern part of the province devastated. The roads were ruined and impassable. There was no signal reception in the island for five days. There was a lack of water and food supply. Houses in other communities were totally destroyed. Weeks after the typhoon happened, people are still trying to build their houses piece by piece from scratch as they lack materials needed.
The residents of Palawan are still in dire need of help. Specifically, they need clean water, food supplies, medicine, and materials to build their own houses. Your help can go a long way. By donating any amount, you can give hope to people who once showed their beauty and smile to the world through their hospitality and kindness.
