Typhoon Sendong: Medical Supplies needed for CDO and Iligan

This is a repost from Memey Mendoza.

SITUATION:  First hand info from my cousins who live in Iligan and CDO.  Evacuation Centers Survivors are slowly dying as well cos of lack of medicines. In the BAYUG ISLAND along the shoreline of Iligan, 70% of pop’n was wiped out, and so many are still missing. One site they have dug up 300 bodies already. This is just in Iligan. Situation much worse in CDO.
