Scenes from the devastation in the Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan have affected all of us. At least 3,600 people have been killed, and the United Nations is estimating that more than 2 million people have been left homeless. In one city of 200,000, no buildings appear to have survived the storm intact. While aid is now flowing in from around the world, getting it to people remains a challenge.
