VILLAMOR Air Base has become the first stop for Typhoon “Yolanda” victims fortunate enough to board the military’s C-130 planes from typhoon-ravaged Cebu and Tacloban.

Friday was the third day that hundreds of hungry, weary and grieving souls landed at the Philippine Air Force hangar in Pasay City, their first reprieve from the nightmare caused by what experts call the strongest typhoon in history to make landfall.

Volunteers from all walks of life welcomed families, senior citizens, children and babies, finding ways to best serve typhoon survivors.
