There has hardly been any news coverage on the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda on Ormoc City, Leyte. I personally went to Ormoc two days after the Typhoon via speedboat to see the damage for myself. The situation is dire. 95% of homes have been destroyed. Relief Goods and medicines are running out. There are no power or communication lines. Many areas are still impassable because fallen trees, electric posts and debris litter the streets. Ormoc is in dire need of the world's help.

Please continue to spread the word that ORMOC URGENTLY NEEDS HELP and please continue to share your blessings with Ormoc. Daghang Salamat.
