Give & Share: Let's offer our prayers and help in every way we can...

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

It is very unfortunate that most of the reported caused of death were floating trees or logs that slammed to houses, bridges, schools where people seek refuge. This is one lesson that shall give wisdom to DENR to properly manage the mountains/forest to be free of tree debris, abandoned logs/timber. One developmental program is to implement a “Wood or Wood Waste Recovery Program” to gather, recover or salvage all abandoned logs/timber including deceased trees & typhoon knocked-down trees that pose high risk of being carried away by run-off or floods. 

The program does not only provide employment to thousands of people considering that the country has about Six (6) million hectares of forests which are “bombarded” with strong typhoons at average of 10 typhoons a year. Due to very strong wind, trees fall down especially the deceased & over matured (very old) trees. So, these trees should be recovered/salvaged, not only to save their economic value as good source of lumber for development but to “free” the mountain from debris with high potential as “TORPEDO” during flash floods. Or free our country from this money making devils who wanted to be rich and leave our poor forests bare from trees and dilute our mother nature into nothing. How selfish can you get? while these people get to lay down into think beds and eat caviars or sharks fin and steaks, people are dying just because they all focus on how to get more money. I really hope our government can focus on this, especially DENR. This has been a crucial matter and has not been resolved for the past years. 

When I saw the pictures in the internet of the aftermath of typhoon Sendong, I was really devastated. It happened again. This happend in Ormoc City too. Just because of Illegal logging. 

Let's all do our share by helping the ones in need especially this season. We don't really need to give a huge amount of money, here's how you can give out help.
