On November 15, 2013 we received the first report from Ms. Lourdes Damazo, head of a consortium of relief teams for Asia America Intiative and our partner organizations One World Institute and IPI Foundation. She was continuing our first series of life-saving aid distribution missions in areas of the Central Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan [Yolanda] where thousands have people perished and millions are homeless. Texting a message from Ormoc in Leyte Province, she stated, "In the second day of our relief mission we are finding destruction beyond anything we have seen in previous relief missions. Many dead bodies still are in the streets here and in Tacloban, where our colleague Christian just returned from."
