Super typhoon Haiyan smashed into the Philippines
HKCTU calls for donations
Super typhoon Haiyan battered Philippines, killing an estimated 10,000 people and displacing more than 600,000 families. The survivors had no food, water, medicine or electricity.
The Super Typhoon Haiyanstruck is one of the strongest storms on record, which sent tsunami-like waves and brutal winds tearing across large swathes of the Phlippine archipelago. It smashed into different provinces of Phlippines destroying the electricity, transportation and communication lines there.
Over 160,000 Filipino domestic workers work in Hong Kong. When they are working for Hong Kong families, they may not be able to contact their families.
In order to support the Filipinos needing urgent aid, HKCTU appeals to all affiliates to call for donations. All donations will contribute to the ITUC-AP Natural Disaster Fund to conduct relief work and to provide rehabilitation services.
