Typhoon in the Philippines

A powerful tropical storm in the Philippines leaves thousands dead

The Philippines is reeling from a massive typhoon that hit its eastern seaboard on Friday. The powerful storm leveled nearly everything in its path and has left a possible death toll of 10,000. Officials fear the number will rise even higher than that. Supertyphoon Haiyan, called Yolanda in the Philippines, is the strongest recorded storm to make landfall anywhere on earth. “The devastation is… I don’t have words for it,” said Philippines Interior Secretary Mar Roxas. “It’s really horrific. It’s a great human tragedy.”

On behalf of Rainbow International School`s Staff, Parents and Students, we would like to express our deepest condolences and sympathy for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Natural disasters like these call for great relief efforts and global responsibility.
The R.I.S. community would like to help the victims of the typhoon and assist them in overcoming this ordeal.  We are joining together to gather donations as well as organize a school-wide fundraiser to aid in restoration efforts.
Our thoughts are with all of Philippines People in this time of need.
