Calling for help for Yolanda (Haiyan) victims

Last November 9, Saturday, the strongest typhoon named Haiyan (aka Yolanda) hit the Visayas region of my beloved country, Philippines. It has been a few days already but the death toll continue to increase. Worse, those who survived are not in only suffering in grief but also in hunger and thirst. Bodies and debris are scattered everywhere. They are on dire need of food, water, clothing, and medicines.

I believe I don’t need to post the photos here since you can see them all over the web too. Thus, I appeal to everyone to help my fellowmen…

    In this difficult situation, the Filipino people will always be survivors and will remain resilient amid the grief and pain so many were going through, having lost so much. Filipinos are strong and will rise again.
    Just would like to share this. Take care, be strong and God bless.
