Speaking at the first anniversary of the Haiyan typhoon, the most devastating one in the Philippines’ history, the former Filipino deputy Chua thanked Kimse Yok Mu for its aid and relief efforts. “Great that we have you and Turkey. On behalf of my country, I would like to thank KYM. You’ve never left us alone since the very first day. Many organizations left here after two weeks but you didn’t.” Chua said.

The foundation has continuously assisted the region in a heart wrenching condition throughout the past one year. In the commemorative ceremony, those coming from all over the country lit candles and prayed in honor of the victims. The local aid organizations, governor’s staff alongside Tacloban people gathered outside the governor’s building and showed their support for the renovation and reinforcement efforts going on in the city.

The deputies and governors in the region briefed the efforts underway in Tacloban for the past one year and thanked aid and relief organization including KYM for their rescue efforts and permanent aid activities.

The Haiyan Typhoon had earlier hit Tacloban city along with the Leyte and Samar islands in Nov. 8, 2013, leaving about 10 thousand dead and 1,5 billion worth of damage.
