Sunday, December 22, 2013
WATERFRONT Airport Hotel and Casino has been honored and privileged to house some of the international volunteers who came to help the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda.
Right after Yolanda hit Tacloban and other areas in the Visayas last Nov. 8, several groups from different countries rushed to the Philippines to provide aid in various ways.
As a gesture of gratitude, the hotel recently organized an appreciation party for the international volunteers. The room was filled with men in uniforms from the Royal Australian Air Force, Australian Army and Navy.
Also present during the event were groups from HKL Logistics, United Nations (UN) Children’s Fund and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and World Food Programme (WFP). Team leaders and representatives from each organization shared some of their experiences during their stay in the country.
