By Monabelle Salaan
The super typhoon Yolanda (internationally known as Haiyan) had left a heart breaking destruction to the people of the Philippines especially in the Visayas region. Not only properties are damage, but many lives are lost by the storm. The most affected areas are Leyte (Tacloban City, Ormoc City), Samar, Cebu (Bantayan, Malapascua), Aklan, Capiz, Coron, and Iloilo.
Though there have been a lot of help that came from different countries and different organizations, there are still cities and municipalities left which haven’t been given relief comforts and goods. If you want to donate goods, we list here the basic goods that our kababayan needs the most.
