Philippines: Life after Typhoon Haiyan

The world's worst-ever typhoon struck central Philippines on 8 November 2013, making landfall with 300 km winds and 5-metre waves. Communities were left without food, electricity, water or any means of contacting their relatives.

Survivors have shown remarkable resilience, but six months after Haiyan, millions remain in a precarious situation. With ICRC support, people in hard-hit Eastern Samar are moving towards self-sufficiency.
