“The aftermath of typhoon Yolanda is expected to be devastating and catastrophic. After the distribution of relief goods, we will continue to appeal for help so we can rebuild houses, schools and more importantly lives of those who were displaced by the typhoon” says Jo Ann Kyle, Managing Director for ABS CBN Foundation International. “Our volunteer teams are already on the ground, making sure that we leave no one behind.”
As of today, the typhoon is already outside the Philippine area of responsibility and assessment of the damages is ongoing.
