The number of people in need of aid is growing as they Haiyan typhoon had hit the Philippines. Due to security, climate and geographic conditions with the collapsing of buildings and roads, relief teams are finding it quite hard to distribute aid. IHH teams today have delivered 40 tons of rice, 4 tons of water, 5000 tins of canned food and 5000 packets of coffee to the crisis centre of Tacloban.

Mr Cemil Baser, a member of the IHH Emergency Relief Department situated in Tacloban states “People have currently taken refuge and are sheltering in big buildings such as Churches, schools, shopping malls and sports centers. The rest of the population is trying to build shelters among all the rubble. There is quite a large amount of new born children present”.

Mr Baser concluded stating, “The people present within the higher class of society are being transferred to the Island of Cebu with means of using military cargo planes and ships”.
