They now have set up operations in Tanauan, approximately 30 miles south of Tacloban, which has been hit very hard. The group is equipped with three surgical teams and more than 30 parcels of medical supplies as well as a self-contained surgical tent. The team also has a satellite phone, so status updates will be made daily.
