Relief aid pours into typhoon-struck communities

Maita Manglapus, a member of the Rotary Club of Mactan in Cebu, Philippines, helps the military distribute food and water to typhoon survivors.

For more than three hours, Typhoon Haiyan violently shook the roof, walls, and windows of Edgar Chiongbian’s house. The heavy winds and flying debris threatened to collapse his home to its foundation at any moment.

After the winds subsided and the rain stopped, he emerged from where he and his family had taken cover and inspected the damage.

“We were one of the lucky families,” says Chiongbian, governor of Rotary District 3860 in the Philippines. “There was no major damage to our house.”
