The Philippines can never recover quickly without the help of the international community after typhoon Yolanda devastated badly the Eastern part of the country particularly in the Visayas region. Even the Vietnamese, Australians and more from the Americans are still coming in on top of the monetary donations, relief facilities, equipment and goods from many foreign countries with or without strong political ties. Truly, that a calamity can either unite or divide mankind. Here’s the good news:
MORE than three decades after the Philippines opened its doors to Vietnamese refugees, the Vietnamese have returned the favor with a donation of more than P19 million to support reliefefforts for victims of typhoon Yolanda. http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/news/national/63114-ph-receives-yolanda-aid-from-intl-community
Sightings of the “Not For Sale” ready-to-eat meal packages from the U.S. were reported and allegedly being sold in few public markets in Manila. It’s still a mystery how they got there – but the government has vowed to investigate this. Hope that this will not discourage international people from donating some more. Perhaps, proper logistics must be implemented to make sure that the aids meant for the survivors will be delivered to them accordingly.
