PBS NewsHour Reports On Humanitarian Aid Coordination In Typhoon-Hit Philippines
PBS NewsHour reports on aid efforts in typhoon-hit Philippines. With support from the Under-Told Stories Project at Saint Mary’s University in Minnesota, correspondent Fred Sam De Lazaro examines how relief workers are coordinating food and other aid as it flows into Tacloban, one of the hardest-hit areas. “For now, relief officials say at least the most basic food need is being met. The ongoing challenge will be to keep replenishments moving in and out swiftly,” he reports, adding, “The next priority for many in the recovery effort is sanitation, everything from latrines to toiletry essentials” (12/18).
