BTW Andy is asking people to give to Unicef for relief to those in the Philippines, great charitable and caring person he is.
Will do right now, but I fear it could take billions to get that country back to rights.
This is the list of International aid, both monetary and practical, given so far, although the list isn't comprehensive - and I can't believe the puny £125,000 donated by China!
Australia: Aus$10m ($9.4m; £5.8m), including medical personnel
China: $200,000 (£125,000)
European Commission: 3m euros (£2.5m; $4m)
Indonesia: Aircraft, personnel, drinking water, food, generators, medicine
Japan: 25 emergency medical personnel
New Zealand: NZ$2.15m (£1.1m)
UK: £6m ($9.6m) non-food aid package
UN World Food Programme: an initial $2m
US: 90 marines and sailors; emergency food, water, shelter and hygiene materials
EDIT: Since this list was published, Britain has upped its aid to £10m, and also a RN Destroyer has been sent to offer practical support.
^^ I agree Aileen. Awful. We do have a MW member in the Philippines don't we? I hope she has stayed safe.
My stepmother lives there - I haven't heard from her directly, but apparently she is OK
There are quite a few messages of thanks to Andy on facebook from Filipino fans
I'm glad your step-mother is OK but having to cope with the aftermath must be extremely traumatic.
MW does have a member in the Philippines but I can't remember her name, although I don't think she's posted on the forum for ages.
