A Toronto paramedic is among the many Canadians volunteering to deliver aid to the typhoon-ravaged Philippines.

CBC's Charlsie Agro meets Global Medic volunteer Pepito Biclair, a paramedic who spent the first 33 years of his life in the Philippines, where he was trained as a doctor. Biclair still has many family ties in the Philippines, including a brother whose home was severely damaged by Typhoon Haiyan's strong winds and rushing water.

Watch Agro's full report in the video above.
