The stories coming out of the Philippines are unimaginable. Rushing water and wind tearing children away from their parents’ arms. A death toll that may be over 10,000. A city of 200,000 in which no buildings appear to have survived intact. How Yogis can help Typhoon Haiyan survivors? The Philippines experiences around 20 typhoons and natural-related disasters a year, with another one to hit early next week, and another four due before the end of the year. Filipinos call them bagyo.
One of the most intense typhoons on record. Most weather experts expected reports of horrific damage and high loss of life given the intensity of the storm and geography of the affected areas, but not many were prepared. Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) left catastrophic destruction behind. The team now in the Philippines most recently responded with 43,000 meals to the 7.1 earthquake that struck Bohol less than a month ago.
In response to Super Typhoon Haiyan, Convoy of Hope will be distributing food, water filters, shoes and other supplies to survivors.
