Dear editor,

After the devastating typhoon in the Philippines the outpouring of support for the survivors was again inspiring.

Here is a report and a thank you from Doctors Without Borders (msf.ca), one of the many humanitarian groups using matching funds from the people of Canada responding to this natural disaster.

Msf.ca is continually helping people afflicted by natural and man-made disasters throughout our troubled world.

“With your help, we conducted 66,795 patient consultations, admitted 1,552 patients into hospital, performed 365 surgeries, and delivered 395 babies within the first two months,” says Stephen Cornish, executive director, MSF Canada. “We also distributed 62,925 humanitarian relief items, including reconstruction kits, shelter kits, hygiene kits and cooking sets. Thank you for being part of our emergency response.”

Mel McLachlan,
