The storm was known locally as Yolanda. ACT Alliance members have been providing a variety of forms of assistance to survivors here, and Mayor Codilla wrote the Geneva-based network to express his appreciation. Singh accompanied ACT Alliance General Secretary John Nduna (right) during a visit to Ormoc and other typhoon-affected communities to learn first hand about the network's emergency response and long-term plans for recovery and rehabilitation.
