I was born and raised back in the Philippines. Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda is a catergory 5 Super Typhoon and it has been very difficult for the pilipino people to deal with this kind of disaster. This is due to the affected places having low resources and weak building infastracture. It's disturbing to see a poor country like the philippines experiencing this kind of event. I know that one person or dollar can make a big difference.
