  2. 2. Typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was an exceptionally powerful tropical cyclone that devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, in November 8, 2013. It was three months ago, areas of the Philippines were destroyed by typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The storm slammed into Tacloban, a city of 220,000 in the central Philippines. Evacuation has finally begun, but many residents remain in the region without food, clean water or shelter—all were destroyed by the typhoon. STEPHANIE Y. CASTILLO

  11. 11. The trail of devastation caused by Yolanda is enormous. Yes! They need our help! I am calling everyone especially my fellow Filipinos to extend help to Yolanda victims. We are just lucky not to be one of them. Let’s unite and help our brothers and sisters who are in great need. We don’t need to be rich to be able to help others. All we need is a giving heart. I have high hopes that our beloved country can make it through this tough crisis. Now it’s our chance to show what it really is to be Filipino. Let’s help one another and be ‘men and women for others. STEPHANIE Y. CASTILLO
