I’m sure that you’ve seen my home country all over the news lately. Parts of the Philippines, including my family’s hometown: Coron, Palawan (the town which was last hit by the typhoon), have been devastated by super typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) and is in desperate need of help.
Homes destroyed. Lives taken. Infrastructure destroyed. No access to clean water, food and medicine.
