The most powerful storm in human history recently hit close to home, leaving island communities flattened and wiped-out. The wanton destruction and senseless suffering that Typhoon Haiyan has brought to our island nation is beyond comprehension and imagination. In a situation worse than hell, a spark of hope glimmers amidst the blinding tears. Lives will again be rebuilt and the country will soldier on, thanks to the help of the global community.
In behalf of my country men, I thank you dear international community for your kind help to our country in our darkest hour. We will never forget your kindness.
