The most powerful tropical cyclone of the year hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013. Super typhoon Yolanda (International codename: Haiyan) barreled through most of the Visayas, leaving a trail of devastation in its wake.
As you all may know, it caused havoc to the provinces of the Visayas displacing thousands of houses and establishments and thousands been killed and missing. There are so many aids pouring from all over the world with the United Kingdom as the topnotch donor of aid. As the aids are pouring, the distribution of the basic commodities like food, water, shelter were very slow and politicking was a usual occurence. Most of the items never reached the victims or there were some slow pace distributions to the affected. I know that Samar and Leyte provinces will recover and rehabilitate soon with the help of our prayers and the agencies that are responsible in restoring back to normal. Let us just hope that there will be no more calamities that will undergo Philippines.
