Ten Toledo area medical professionals once again are traveling to the heart of destruction caused by a typhoon in the Philippines.
On Thursday, volunteers loaded 30 duffel bags of medical supplies this morning in Maumee.
Dr. Antonio Paat says his son, Richard, and the other volunteers are heading back just 10 days after returning from their last mission. The previous mission was to the island of Panay which experienced the destruction caused by the Typhoon but was spared the high death toll in Tacloban farther east.
In just the last week and a half, Dr. Paat says, the situation in Tacloban has improved enough to allow the team to travel there safely. The team expects to set up camp in an abandoned hotel in the village of Tanauen.
The 10 volunteers left from Detroit Metropolitan Airport this afternoon. Their trip will take at least 16 hours.
