Description : It is one year since Haiyan, the world's worst 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. More than 16 million people were affected. Over 6,300 died and more than 4 million were displaced. An estimated 1.14 million homes were damaged or destroyed.
A year on, survivors are still trying to recover from the unprecedented devastation. While a number of communities have repaired or rebuilt damaged houses - be it from the assistance they received or through their own remarkable efforts - some communities are still in need.
Edmundo Pabello, a farmer from Samar Island in the Philippines, lost his home and crops in the wake of typhoon Haiyan. Given the destruction, he could not go back to farming right away. But on the flip side, the destruction meant a lot of reconstruction was necessary. So he enrolled to be trained as a carpenter. He wanted to rebuild his own storm-resilient home.
