Army asking for construction materials to shelter typhoon 'Yolanda' (Haiyan) victims

From the Philippine News Agency (Nov 19): Army asking for construction materials to shelter typhoon 'Yolanda' (Haiyan) victims

Aside from food, medicine and clothing, the Eastern Mindanao Command, one of the military units helping in the ongoing relief and rehabilitation of "Yolanda" battered provinces in the Visayas Region, is also requesting donations of roofing materials and nails from kindhearted donors.

Capt. Alberto Caber, Eastern Mindanao Command spokesperson, said Wednesday these construction materials are needed to sustain the efforts undertaken by the Joint Task Force "Tambayayong" in Leyte for reconstruction works.

He added that providing shelter to "Yolanda" victims is of paramount importance as this is one of the means to uplift their spirits.

Donations can be forwarded to the Department of Public Works and Highways maintenance depot in Panacan, Davao City.

As this develops, Caber said that as of Nov. 19, they and other relief agencies have so far delivered 42,712 family food packs in Leyte.

For Wednesday, he said delivery of another 14,400 food packs is scheduled for transport to Ormoc City.
