    Costa Rica Collecting Donations for Philippine Typhoon VictimsThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The government of Costa Rica and the Red Cross have opened up a collection to help the millions of victims in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

    “Under such circumstances we must respond with generosity. Costa Rica has always been known for being a supportive people and today will not be the exception,” said President of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, in a statement.

    The National Emergency Commission and Costa Rican Red Cross have opened accounts for citizens to donate money, but said they are not going to collect food and other aid, with idea being that the Philippine authorities will invest the money in what they consider most pressing.

    “In this tragedy, the force of nature overcame the response capabilities of a nation. This invites us to reflect on the growing impact of phenomena in cities that are becoming increasingly vulnerable,” said Chinchilla.

    The death toll from Typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines now exceeds 1,700, according to official sources. The United Nations estimates that fatalities will total more than 10,000 by the weather phenomenon.

    About 10 million Filipinos have been affected by the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan, of which at least 660,000 are displaced, according to the official count so far. (EFE)
