    A Filipino nurse with a non-governmental organization provides medical treatment to a baby here Nov. 17 after he and his family arrived aboard a U.S. Marine KC-130J Super Hercules. Marine Corps and other U.S. military aircraft have moved more than 15,000 people out of areas devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. While evacuating the personnel out of affected areas is accomplished through a combined effort of military aircraft, commercial airlines and civilian pilots working with the Government of the Philippines, a host of non-governmental organizations support the Government of the Philippines once evacuees arrive in Manila. The volunteers’ part in the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief effort, named Oplan Hatid, combines dozens of individual organizations into a cohesive unit providing support to the evacuees.
