Huge help is needed in Philippines

A huge disaster, a Typhoon named Haiyan, happened in Philippines. For the moment there is about 2,300 victims, and this number is expected to rise. A lot of people lost members of their family and friends, some children are now orphan. Bodies are lying everywhere, even on the side of the street. Survivors are waiting at the airport for a flight out of the city. Aid workers are there to help them but they struggle to help the survivors. Apparently, employees from medecins sans frontiers said that the issue of distributing aid was enormous. The United-sates military aircraft are bringing aid they brought food and water, because that’s one of the main think that people are missing. It is hard to get the relief supplies the population needs because the roads are blocked and the infrastructures are destroyed. Many countries gave financial aid, emergency teams or relief supplies. The United Kingdom, Japan and China are going to send help, which should be really helpful.
In my opinion, this natural disaster is horrible. Like the article said, it killed a lot of people, separated families and destroyed and entire city. We can not do any thing to prevent natural disasters, but maybe more countries could help those that are really in need. All the rich countries should help, at least a little bit, because each gesture could change their life conditions.
