Miss World Megan Young has had a busy weekend working alongside with Red Cross, travelling to regions across the Philippines which have been left devastated by Typhoon Yolanda, taking in the relief operations.
Megan took part in food distribution efforts, play therapy sessions with young children and volunteering at field hospitals and health care units, setup as part of relief operations in various cities in the Visayas.
Last Saturday, Megan traveled from Cebu to Estancia, Iloilo, where she took part in serving hot meals to 2000 local residents, before going on a field visit in the local area. She then traveled to Loon, Bohol where she took part in distributing essential non-food supplies. In the evening Megan continued onto the Red Cross Loon Field Hospital, where further hot meals were distributed and time spent with those recovering after the Typhoon.
Working with the Red Cross, Megan has been getting involved with every aspect of the Red Cross Relief efforts, bringing comfort and support to everyone struggling to restart their life after the typhoon. The distribution of food and supplies is obviously one of the most vital aspect of the operations, until the supply routes and outlets which have been broken by the storm can be repaired and restored.
