OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — An Olathe-based relief group is preparing to send relief supplies to the Philippines in the wake of a deadly typhoon. Typhoon Haiyan swept across the Philippines on Friday, killing thousands of people. The massive storm also wiped out homes, schools and airport buildings. Heart to Heart International spokesman Dan Weinbaum says the agency's current efforts are a continuation of its year-round relief work in the Philippines. The organization will ship relief supplies and materials, including care kits, hygiene kits and relief boxes with pharmaceutical supplies which can serve up to 500 people. The Kansas City Star reports that Heart to Heart International is working with partner organizations in the Philippines, including Springfield-based Convoy of Hope and Hope Worldwide.
