Since the typhoon struck two weeks ago, medical aid organization Direct Relief has already delivered 10 tons of materials valued at $4 million to the Philippines through 10 emergency airfreight shipments and hand-carried items provided to medical teams traveling to the region. The donations contain antibiotics, I.V. fluids, oral rehydration formula, wound care supplies, pain relievers, surgical instruments, nutritional supplements, hygiene kits, and chronic disease medicines.
