Malapascua is an island in Northern Cebu, best known for its world-class dive sites and the thresher sharks. It was not spared from the wrath of Yolanda (Haiyan).

As of 9AM today, November 10, there is still no signal on the island. All we have are aerial photos of the devastation. The first batch of the Help Malapascua team is on the way to the island from Cebu City to establish radio towers, so we can find out more about what the community needs the most.
In the meantime, we can all help rebuild the island by giving relief goods (e.g., food, water, and medicine).
