Philippines have been through another devastating typhoon. Haiyan the 24th storm to hit the Philippines is the world’s strongest cyclone ever recorded to make a landfall.
Haiyan a category 5 super typhoon, had winds of 190-196mph and the effect has been devastating for all areas affected by it.
Forecasters expect catastrophic damages as Thousands of people to flee their homes as gusts of wind majorly damaged thousands of homes and livelihoods.
I came from a small quite village in Dao, Capiz, one of many towns that were severely battered by Haiyan.
My cousin claimed that the village is no longer the same as the one I left behind.
Neighbours have now taken shelter at my grandma’s house after their homes were wiped out.
Three families and with young children with no home to call their own.
The after effect is devastating. Crops are ruined, houses have been wiped out, and years of hard work have been blown away by the most powerful typhoon.
I have planned to go back home in December. And before that, I hope to raise enough funds to help the local village.
Funds that I raise can help them buy basic materials to rebuild their homes, food and clothes for everyone especially children.
I hope that we can all help them pick the pieces and have some form of normality before we welcome 2014.
