Responding to the disaster of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines 1

On November 8th, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan, among the most powerful storms ever recorded, crashed across the central islands of the Philippines. The news reports that more than 10,000 are expected to be the casualties from this calamity.

To follow-up on the damages caused by the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that had hit the island of Bohol last month and again by this super typhoon, as a first dispatch responding to this disaster, AMDA's nurse left Japan on November 10th to Bohol to observe the current situation in the already-damaged island. She was also sent to Bohol last month for the emergency relief mission.

Considering the scale of this calamity caused by Typhoon Haiyan, AMDA will be dispatching two coordinators to Manila on November 14th, 2013, and will get ready to receive medical team from Japan and AMDA's overseas chapters.
