Excellent blog article on Tzu Chi Volunteers helping in major disasters - many also being recruited by Chinese officials:


Tecson John Lim, the city administrator of Tacloban, the Leyte Province capital that was devastated by the typhoon, said that ****out of 50 dump trucks that were removing debris after the storm, two were from the United Nations Development Program, three were from the national government, six were from city agencies and the Red Cross — and 39 were from Tzu Chi. Using money raised by volunteers in 46 countries, the Buddhist group rented the trucks in Cebu, the biggest city in the central Philippines, and had them transported to Tacloban, on a different island.
