20 provinces and the worst hit ones are Leyte and Eastern Samar. These are the names of the towns that have the worst damage and losses..... Guivan, Mercedes, Salcedo, Hernani, Balangkayan, Quinapondan, Giporlos, Balangiga and Lawaan. There are many others but these have been discovered as the worst affected as of now. Fb NWS News tells of horrific human need and hunger. This picture tells the story of a RC vehicle that was hijacked on its way to another town, by citizens living in just as bad conditions in need as well. This situation is desparate because of hunger, sickness and death all around them.
Trying to save the life of a tiny child in the midst of total chaos. This situation is critical that outside help comes in to offer aid and support to the Filipino people.
Children are at the most risk of all, notice the tear on the little girl's face.... They HAVE to have others to care for them and help provide for them. Moms are needed to offer food and compassionate care to stabilize their lives.
MAH meetings continue today to connect people and places for our containers of food to go to. We will network together with others to offer the greatest amount of help that is possible. Ms Pagdilao and Dr Gayla plan how to help mothers and children affected in this typhoon.
