Typhoon Yolanda Aftermath: Thank You World for Your Help

n the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) the most powerful storm ever to hit land, the global outpouring of aid is just so overwhelming. We Filipinos never realized we had so many friends all over the world. There doesnít seem to be a country that has not offered to help.

From little girls in the U.S.A. who sold lemonade, or Shoichi  a six-year-old Japanese boy who donated his entire piggy-bank savings, all the way up to the billions donated by countries large and smallóthank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you as well to all those volunteers who flew in from every corner of the globe: health professionals, search and rescue teams, members of the media, pilots flying their big cargo planes and helicopters, and every last one who helped make this gargantuan relief effort possible.

One lesson we Filipinos take away from this is that even in the midst of terrible tragedy we are all part of one global community of nations. It is the Bayanihan spirit that we Filipinos talk aboutóbut this time on a global scale. And while the Philippines still faces significant challenges ahead, it now faces those challenges as a proud member of the community of nations, ready to lend others a helping hand.
