    WALK, so they can stand.

     
    Manila, Philippines – Even though they are separated by 13 different time zones, many Filipinos from many parts of the globe participated and joined the Worldwide Walk for Typhoon Haiyan, hosted by the religious group Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). The group has been giving various aids such as food, clothing, medical and dental services through their “Kabayan Ko, Kapatid Ko” (My Countrymen, my Brethren) slogan.

    The charity walk aims to help the thousands of victims of the super typhoon (local name “Yolanda”), which hit the Eastern Visayas of the Philippines last November.

    At least 27 countries from around the world will be participating in the said event. Nearly a hundred sites in the Philippines alone have already participated in the promotion of the charity walk. In other areas, 34 cities in the U.S., 6 in Europe, 8 in Asia and 7 in Australia have joined in as well.
    Typhoon Haiyan was an exceptionally powerful tropical cyclone that ravaged parts of Southeast Asia, most particularly the Philippines. On record, it is the deadliest Philippine storm to date, which has claimed the lives of at least 6,2013 people.
