Typhoon Haiyan affected the Filipinos massively. So many of our fellow countrymen lost homes, lost loved ones and even lost lives. Several days after the strong storm, most would think that it would be over. But even till today, many of us continue to show our efforts to help them recover from the traumatic experience. The amazing thing is that the whole world has began to work together with us. So many artists from all around the world have done fund raisers for the benefit of our people.
One of them is the Biebs. Remember when he posted a photo on his Instagram of a graffiti creation he made dedicated to the typhoon Haiyan victims? If you don't remember then read it here.
Yesterday, he flew to the Philippines to give back and continue his effort of helping our people. He landed around 7:10 am via private plane at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2. Check out his Twitter
