The Filipino-American Association of Greater Columbia is hosted a typhoon relief fundraiser Saturday.

The Filipino food sale and basketball tournament was at the Polo Road Recreation Center.

According to the latest figures by the Philippines' main disaster agency, 3,633 people died and 12,487 were injured. Many of the bodies remain tangled in piles of debris, or are lining the road in body bags that seep fetid liquid. Some are believed to have been swept out to sea.
