Postcard from GlobalGiving's Visit

The following is an e-postcard from Zamil Akhtar, a GlobalGiving Representative in the Philippines:

Mindanao rarely had typhoons and then it had three – one after another. The people were not ready, and the devastation was enormous. Relief has taken a long time, but what I saw in Davao City was impressive. Communities had been resettled away from vulnerable zones, and houses had been rebuilt. Families were provided with medical care and relief supplies. The community leaders in Mindanao -- poorest part of the Philippines -- know that a lot more must be done, and Asia America Initiative is lending an essential hand by providing the direction and funding necessary to get things back to normal.
