Typhoon Haiyan hit the eastern coast of the Philippine Island leaving in its wake death and destruction. The official death toll as of Tuesday November 12, 2013 is 1,774 and climbing. This is so sad! Not only are the people trying to survive destruction Typhoon Haiyan. They have to deal with landslides that were trigged by the Typhoon. Help is slow coming. Doctor in Tacloban reported that there are 1,000 of people with cuts, bruises, lacerations and deep wounds that need medicine. The survivor are not getting the help they need fast enough. The Philippine communities in the bay area are having fundraisers to raise money for the survivors. If you would like to help contact your local Philippine community center.
