Kris assures typhoon survivors: Help is on the way

MANILA – Television host Kris Aquino assured the survivors of super typhoon "Yolanda" (international name Haiyan) that help is on the way. Speaking on her morning show “Kris TV” on Friday, Aquino said she was able to talk to her friends from budget airline AirAsia Zest and they agreed to lend their planes to help deliver the goods to calamity-hit areas. “The good fortune na nabigay, because yesterday I was feeling desparate, sabi ko nakakahiya na tanggap tayo nang tanggap ng goods pero hindi natin pa napapakita sa mga tao na umaabot sa kanila talaga na personal nating dinadala,” she said. “Ang dami kong naging kaibigan recently and AirAsia, which bought Zest, changed pala their fleet. They were so nice to me kasi may commitment ako on Sunday with Sagip Kapamilya to bring 10 tons of these goods to Leyte,” Aquino added. Saying she has no problem with shouldering the cost of fuel, Aquino stressed that the most important thing now is to ensure that the goods will properly be delivered to those in need. “They gave it to me na ang cost lang to me was the fuel charge. Sabi ko kung hindi ka bubunot sa sarili mong bulsa at maghihintay ka pa, kawawa naman ang mga nangangailangan. On Sunday, we will at least be able to bring 10 tons,” she said. Aquino, who is the youngest sister of President Benigno Aquino III, said it feels great to know that everyone is coming together to extend aid to those who survived the super typhoon. “On the private side, we are doing this. On the government side, it’s 140,000 relief packs a day that is being distributed. Everybody is helping each other,” she said. Aquino has been closely coordinating with ABS-CBN’s Sagip Kapamilya since its first day of relief operations.
