The aftermath brought about by super typhoon Yolanda (or Haiyan) is truly devastating. It is said to be the strongest storm to make landfall this year, and perhaps the most powerful in recorded history, may have claimed up to 10,000 lives according to some estimates. Now that the storm has finally left our country, the situation that surfaced the social media becomes more heartbreaking knowing that you can do nothing but watch from afar. The vast stretches of land swept clean of homes, people are desperate for food and water and were LITERALLY cut off from the rest of the world, leaving them helpless.
There are many ways to help, you can donate goods or in cash, you can also help in repacking reliefs.
