MIYD 2013 - Report

THE World Assembly of Youth (WAY) exercised its humanitarian right and obligation in response to the destruction caused by the super typhoon Haiyan which shredded the Philippines district of Leyte, Tacloban and Samar Island on November 4, 2013. Typhoon Haiyan is the second deadliest Philippine typhoon that affected at least 9.8 million people, leaving more than 659,200 people displaced and more than 10,000 people feared dead.

The President of WAY, Rt. Hon. Datuk Seri Ir. Idris Haron during the WAY Humanitarian Aid mission to the Republic of Philippines meeting at the Chief Minister's office on Friday said that "WAY will channel humanitarian aids in the shortest time possible and we are still waiting for the 'green light' from the National Security Council to go there." The organization together with Mamee Double Decker (M) Berhad donated overall 5 intermodal containers of foodstuffs and vital goods. They also raised funds amounting to RM 100,000.00 to aid during this hard time.
