Thank you a Million Times, UK!! We are lacking of tools that's why it's hard to hand the relief goods to the Typhoon Victims. Debris are everywhere. And that's right we need demolition not construction and I wish our Philippines Government should consider buying new equipments for our country because we do not have one. Thank you for letting us use the equipment.

Our Philippines Government should give some hammer,nails, chain saw, shovels, construction tools etc. so that people can cut those down trees and debris.

they're inutil...Per CNN Cooper, five days after the typhoon, people in Tacloban City are still asking where the reliefs for food and medicines. A Doctor helping the evacuees confirmed that there was no relief coming in especially food and medicines.

Could hire illegal loggers to cut toppled trees. Seen photos of loggers with Stihl saws. A working size saw cost around $600 Stateside. From the news, looks like the squatters building new shacks, they got hammers somewhere.
I'm wondering how they'll get the ships washed so far inland back to sea. Be a good idea to sand blast and repaint boats before setting sail again. If have to do dredging, use the rocks dug up in building sea walls.
Nobody wants to listen to me anyway. Anak's friend being stationed in Alaska for 3 years and I'll telling him to buy a new 4x4 and drive up. Even dealer prices of new cars higher up there.

Hadn't thought about it, but this is a gold mine for squatters. Wondering what the one going to Manila will wind up doing. They ruined Fort Bonifacio for public use in emergency's. Don't think the sky scraper owners will help. Would have made a great place for tent city. Manila sits on a fault line, would have been an open place to run. Wonder what Andress Bonifacio would think of it now. Wonder who got the pay offs for construction on government land,

Speaking about medicine. People relying too much on medicine and not enough of sickness preventions. Good Hygiene, nutrition, clean orderly environments, good infra structure, jobs and good non corrupt government takes care most of everything.

My Sis goes back every year. I joined a couple years ago. I bought a couple first aid kits to take. My educated Sis never though of it. She's going again and I'd bet my paycheck she don't take a first aid kit. Relatives ask for less important stuff.
