Philippines

A little over a week after a major typhoon devastated parts of the Philippines, there is some reason for hope today.

NPR's Russell Lewis, who has been trying to get to Tacloban all week, points us to the front page of today's The Philippine Star: "Aid Delivery To Leyte, Samar Speeding Up" the main headline reads.

Members of Jacksonville’s Filipino community are continuing relief efforts following last week's devastating typhoon with a fundraising event tonight.

It was one week ago today that Typhoon Haiyan swept across the Philippines, flattening buildings and killing more than 3,000 people. Most who survived the storm found themselves without food, water, or shelter.

Rosabel Hill with the organization We Filipino, Inc. says there has been an outpouring of concern by residents of the First Coast.
