A bag of rice for the people of Philippines

A price of one coffee in Slovenia is one bag of rice in Philippines.
Typhoon Pablo has taken 760 lives in the island of Mindanao, Philippines. 760 are still missing. Several houses have been completely destroyed and more then half a million damaged. The infrastructure has been destroyed and it is going to take a lot of years for things to stabilize back to normal. Typhoon brought a lot of rain and winds with speed of 210 kilometres per hour, that ripped the trees, and roofs, tore down electric wiring. Floods and numerous landslides came down, somewhere destroying entire settlements.

According to the data from the authorities, most of the victims are poor immigrants that have populated the areas with the highest risk of landslides. As said by the geologist Mahar Langmay, many were aware of the danger but did not know where to go to escape. They counted 258 victims of the typhoon on the east cost of the island Mindanao, 191 were found in New Bataan, Monkayo and their surroundings. 17 were found elsewhere throughout the island and 9 on the island of Visayan.

The army and the survivals are still searching for missing people amongst the ruins.
