Nov 11, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Estonia will send two rescue experts and 150,000 euros in aid to the typhoon-ravaged Philippines, reports ERR.

The two experts will be a part of a Scandinavian and Luxembourg rescue team, the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said. 

Two-thirds of the financial aid will be channeled to the country via UNICEF, with the rest going through the Red Cross.

Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms to hit land on record, crossed over parts of the Philippines on Nov. 8, with estimates putting the number of dead at around 10,000, with hundreds of thousands of people displaced.

Meanwhile, Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis and Foreign Minister, Edgars Rinkevics sent condolences to Phillipines officials.

A Latvian Foreign Ministry statement read: "Prime Minister and Foreign Minister express their deepest sympathies with the victims’ families and the whole Philippine people, while wishing a speedy and complete recovery to the injured. "

Elsewhere, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite offered her messages of condolences for the Phillipines.

She said: "Please accept my personal sympathy and the condolences of the Lithuanian people over the devastating consequences caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. I wish strength and fortitude to the victims' families, friends and to all those injured and left homeless," the President wrote in her message of condolences."
