Motivational Filipino American speaker and armless pilot Jessica Cox is joining the effort to raise funds for victims of Typhoon Haiyan, reports ABS CBN.
“I do want to help the disabled the best way I can and the best thing to do right now is to get the word out that we are collecting funds because Handicap International is on the ground now working to help all those victims,” she said.
Cox’s relatives are from the town of Mercedes, an area devastated by Haiyan. Her great aunt died in the disaster and she suspects when she visits the area possibly in March, she will not recognize it.
