On the 2nd of December 2004 Typhoon “Yoyong” entered Phillipines creating chaos in many areas of the country. An estimated 30,000 houses, 1,000 schools and miles of farmland were destroyed by back-to-back storms, while it left more than 1,000 persons dead and hundreds missing. The biggest threat, however, posing to those who survived the storms is the outbreak of infectious diseases in some of the worst affected areas, such as gastroenteritis, cholera and hepatitis.
In light of this devastation and in an effort to provide aid to the affected families Intership Navigation purchased and distributed goods to the typhoon victims. Goods included rice noodles, milk, bottled water, canned goods, medicines, blankets, mosquito nets, kerosene stoves and many others.
