White House Response to the Victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda


The following is an E-mail I received the other day from the White House-Office of the President.

Last Friday, Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Eastern Philippines. The images coming out of the disaster over the course of the past week have been devastating.

Entire towns and cities have been washed away. Tens of thousands of families are without homes and searching for loved ones.

The President recorded a message addressing this tragedy, describing the response and recovery efforts of American teams on the ground right now -- and most importantly, how you can help.


Last weekend, the President ordered a swift, coordinated response: U.S. Marines were some of the first on the ground in the hardest-hit areas after the storm made landfall.

And right now, American aircraft are delivering bottled water, generators, and trucks to affected areas. Emergency shelter material and basic supplies for 10,000 families are on the way. Aid workers will help feed tens of thousands of adults and children in the days to come.

Watch the President's message, and learn how you can support the disaster-relief efforts on the ground:

Thank You, Mr President for your concern of the Filipino People!
