Ex-SAF man goes on second Typhoon Haiyan relief mission
Singaporean Julian Tan left for the Philippines this morning to bring some Christmas cheer to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.
Mr Tan, 40, has purchased some 1,000 food bags in Manila to share with the community in Albuera in Leyte province.
But on his second trip to ground zero within a month, he will take with him more than just ham and other goodies.
The former Singapore Armed Forces commando told The Sunday Times that he will be breaking the good news to the survivors in Albuera of his plans to help rebuild their homes.
Hoping to do more
"Initially I was aiming to rebuild 100 homes but now I am hopeful of helping all 11,565 families who lost their homes in the disaster."
