Listening to the news releases of the government, everything seems to be going back to normal already in the areas in the Philippines that were devastated by Typhoon Yolanda with the international name Haiyan. However, the sufferings are far from over for the affected ones according to many overseas media. Take a look at this one:
Typhoon Haiyan: ‘We are failing thousands of girls at risk of rape or trafficking,’ says Justine Greening
As the international relief effort in the Philippines gets under way, UK development secretary Justine Greening says not enough is being done to protect women and girls from the threat of rape, violence, forced marriage and trafficking. Louisa Peacock reports. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/10444849/Typhoon-Haiyan-relief-effort-We-are-failing-thousands-of-girls-at-risk-of-rape-or-trafficking-says-Justine-Greening.html
Rape, incest and child prostitution happen even in normal circumstances – so, it should not be a surprise learning about these things online. What’s surprising is, there’s no obvious system going on in these affected places to address such problems. Is the local standard just too poor to see these sad occurrences or people in authorities just turned a blind eye on them? Let’s make noise on this one!
