Typhoon Yolanda: Let’s Help

Ripping through. Waves crashing. Coconut tress falling.

Snapping. In half. Heads bent. Hearts beating. Waiting for the storm to pass. Hoping it will pass. 

Typhoon Yolanda is said to be the strongest typhoon in the world’s recorded history.

Watching this super typhoon wreck different parts of my country is both terrifying, heartbreaking, and infuriating; infuriating because it feels as if we can do so little to help those affected. But what little comfort or help we can give, we must give.


 If you know anyone who is stranded, you can report it here at Rescue.ph
