"These people lost everything, and they need everything, and they need it very quickly."
Tanauan, a small town of 50,000 inhabitants located 12 miles south of Tacloban, is one of the worst-affected areas in the Philippines. Some 95 percent of the houses were destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan and the population has only received minimal aid since. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) arrived in Tanauan Tuesday and is running a medical clinic.
