Taiwan sends aid to Philippines
A C-130 military cargo plane belonging to Taiwan lands at an airport in Cebu City. It is one of about a dozen trips flown by the Taiwanese military to deliver urgently needed disaster relief supplies to the neighboring Philippines, which was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in early November.
As of Nov. 14, 12 planes loaded with donations had been flown in just three days. They brought nearly 100 tons of supplies, including food, clothes and daily necessities, collected by Taiwanese NGOs. The supplies are worth more than one and a half million US dollars. Taiwan’s government has also donated US$200,000 to the Philippines.
