"I am Katherine J. I work at a factory in Manila as a tailor. Our family was one of the unfortunate victims of typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan which hit Western Samar.
One of my children and both my parents were there to bear witness of the unfathomable disaster. Due to the intensity of the typhoon, our family home was completely destroyed and so is our rice field which was my parent’s livelihood. At this point of time, I know they are suffering, they have nothing to eat and the relief goods are not reaching their remote area.
I am pleading for help. My only wish is to help my parents build a house they can call a home again after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). Thank you very much."
