When we finished cleaning up it was completely dark but the ...
... funding allotted to the national government has been distributed properly, but so many survivors are still in need of assistance. It is an overwhelming problem to face and quite devastating to think of the long term consequences Typhoon Haiyan will have on millions of people not only in the Philippines, but on the entire world.
