Typhoon-devastated Philippines Gets Heartfelt and Out-pouring Support from All Over the Globe

Despite the fact that incidences of casualties, injuries, looting, hunger and desperation continue to rise after the Philippines has been struck by the record-breaking, strongest typhoon ever noted to hit in the entire history, our nation takes pride to carry on a fighting spirit that continues to toughen amidst all the adversities.

With all the overwhelming response aid that Philippines is getting both locally and internationally, the unimaginable situation after the typhoon in turn becomes more bearable and worth battling for, inspiring and transforming Filipinos to be more selfless and men and women for others more than ever.

Our country will forever be thankful and indebt for all the countries and nationalities from different walks of life, who amazingly went out of their way to get out from their comfort zones and extend their undying support for our typhoon-wrecked country. There has been an outburst of money pledges for medical aid, relief goods and repair and rebuilding of roads, shelters, schools and hospitals. Various planes, choppers, trucks and medical and military force also keep on arriving to help establish faster relief operations and peace and order. In spite of the many challenges and difficulties resurfacing in affected areas such as twisted, blocked roads, broken bridges, traffic surge, lack of communication, electricity, water and shelter, these have not hindered the morale of the people to continue helping.


There may have been several issues arising in the country now that remains to be unresolved, the lives sacrificed, the homes, livelihood and institutions destroyed may never be restored, but the Philippines will continue to survive, spring back from this desolation and start anew with a positive outlook in life, with spirits that will never be crashed by neither any storm nor any disaster.
