Ray of hope for Yolanda Victims
by FFE PH News staff
It is not only the government that is working hard to aid supertyphoon Yolanda’s victims in Visayas. Individuals, foreign governments, local and international personalities and non-governmental agencies are also active in relief operations for the families affected by the supertyphoon that hit the Philippines a week ago.
The World Food Programme (WFP), the food assistance branch of the United Nations, has been one of the agencies working close with the government in distributing food reliefs to typhoon-stricken areas.

“WFP rice and high energy biscuits were distributed to typhoon survivors in one of the worst hit areas of the Philippines on Thursday,” WFP said as the UN agency continued to fly in food and logistics supplies to the affected areas.
WFP said it plans to provide food assistance for 2.5 million people affected by Yolanda in the next six months.
World Vision Philippines, UNICEF and the Philippine Red Cross are also on the ground to help thousands of families in the Visayas:
