The Philippines, with more than 7,000 islands, is annually pummeled by tropical storms and typhoons. Typhoon Haiyan was the fiercest storm surge that came with winds ever recorded in history which unfortunately damaged infrastructures and livelihoods, washed out houses and flattened provinces in the Philippines like Tacloban, Ormoc, Samar, Cebu, Ilo-Ilo, Capiz and other areas.
The catastrophe claimed lives of almost 10,000 people and thousands of family homeless and hungry in the aftermath of the typhoon. People are badly in need of food, water, medicines, clothing and shelter.
The typhoon victims are in dire need of help. They are begging for whatever there is that we can share. Let us help the typhoon victims in every way we can. Every penny and little things we share is already a big comfort and aid to the people in need of sustenance.
Organizations and countries from around the world are pouring help and assistance into the storm-battered Philippines. You and I can do our share in every way we can.
