Just recently, Typhoon Yolanda / Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded, devastated Philippines and Vietnam. When I saw in the news what happened to the people and cities affected, it really broke my heart. It was said (or probably I read in an article) that some people are to the point of losing their minds because of hunger and loss of families. Indeed they desperately need help right now.

I hope they can get through this. Let's pray for them.
