MONTREAL, Nov. 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The LÉGER Foundation Executive
Director Norman MacIsaac arrived last night in Tacloban, one of the
regions most heavily hit by Typhoon Haiyan. Says Mr. MacIsaac: "The
city is a post-apocalyptic scene. The smell of death is everywhere on
the roads. Cell phones barely work, if at all."
Based in a sports complex, the LÉGER Foundation team is coordinating aid
to victims in collaboration with the Regional Health Authorities.
Two other volunteers will be leaving Montreal shortly to bring
additional help to the team already on site.
Marie Denise Pelletier, spokesperson for the LÉGER Foundation throughout
the world, is inviting the public to express their solidarity with
Philippines victims by making a monetary donation to the LÉGER
Foundation, who will ensure proper management.
