  • Print

THE provincial government is lending a hand to the Philippines as it digs out of the damage inflicted by typhoon Haiyan.

Premier Greg Selinger pledged $100,000 to the Manitoba Council for International Co-operation to support reconstruction in the region.

"The lives of thousands of families have been forever changed by what is being called one of the most powerful typhoons to ever hit landfall," Selinger said in a statement.

"Our thoughts are with those families today as they face such unimaginable loss and devastation."

MCIC is an independent coalition of development groups that oversees the distribution of aid and development funding in areas of the world that require disaster relief.

Millions are without shelter or food.

International aid groups and militaries are rushing assistance to the region but little had arrived by Monday.
