The stories of Renee Patron, Susan Tan, and Johnny Ogriman illustrate just how desperate things have become in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. Susan Tan had everything stolen from her warehouse and grocery store from people struggling to survive, yet she is STILL trying to help those in need! Aid organizations and the Filipino government should learn from Susan Tan's example and use every resource available to help the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. The outpouring of relief for the Philippines is wonderful, but it is clear that much more work needs to be done. Anyone who can help the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan should do so, and I applaud anyone who makes a genuine effort to help those in need.
