Every donation, no matter the size, can help because one US dollar equals 43-50 pesos which equates to a meal for one person. Tyhoon Haiyan destroyed cities, farming areas — people’s homes and livelihood literally disappeared in one fell swoop.  Infrastructure was demolished by winds that maxed up to roughly 225mph — stronger than Sandy and Katrina combined. Not only are millions of people homeless, but […]
