Nine months have passed since Supertyphoon Yolanda hit the Philippines. Rehabilitation efforts continue. Yuka Arita RSCJ, District Treasurer of the Philippines, makes an account of how donations have been used.
Super Typhoon Yolanda
Thank you so much for your generous solidarity with the victims of the super-typhoon Yolanda.
From January 5 to 10, 2014, two months after the super-typhoon Yolanda, I visited Northern Samar and Ormoc, Leyte via Tacloban which was one of the most badly hit areas. The purpose of the visit was to see the actual situation in the affected areas, to see how the released donations had been used for the victims, and to have a meeting for the planning of the rehabilitation.
