Typhoon Catastrophe Phillippines 2013
On 8 November 2013, the most violent typhoon, ,,Yolanda” (int. ,,Haiyan”) raged in the Philippines. The stormed ravaged over the mainland with 315 km per hour (195mph), leaving behind a debris field of destruction and took more than 7.000 of lives and affecting as many as 11 million people total.
Cherylyn Vanzuela and me travelled all the way to the Philippines to cover the personal destinies of the victims. It’s been a tough part for us. Here you can find a blog post which we did during our stay.
In September 2014 we organised a charity exhibtion to focus on the reconstruction of the destroyed areas and on the survivors of Yolanda. The donations went to YPDR a young NGO which are rebuild houses on Bantayan Island, Phillippines. This is the website.
