Description : ICRC website, photo gallery from the 15th May 2015:

"A year and a half has gone by since the most powerful storm to ever hit the Philippines, leaving the Visayas region devastated. More than 16 million people were affected – lives, homes, and livelihoods were lost. While many have restored their income-generating activities prior to the typhoon or started alternative ventures, some are still struggling to make ends meet.

The ICRC, together with the Philippine Red Cross, has focused its response on Samar, an island partly affected by armed conflict and violence. To help survivors rebuild their lives, storm-resilient core shelters were given to 4,461 families and cash grants to help resume livelihoods were provided to over 71,000 people."
