So what do we tell our children, and our children's children and the children after them? That we watched Typhoon Haiyan - I call her The Beast - create so much destruction and yet we stood idly by? Of course not. With 12.9 million people affected, 1.9 million displaced and just shy of 300,000 destroyed houses there is only one thing any reasonable person, or country or whole planet can do. Let there be no misunderstanding. The Philippines need our help.
We invite you to come along and join us to hear his fascinating first hand account.
Free parking is available at the venue.
