Thank you to the Red Cross for this new house and for helping me with my livelihood.

For the past two years, the American Red Cross has been on the ground in the Philippines, helping Typhoon Haiyan survivors to rebuild their communities, reclaim their livelihoods, restore infrastructure, and move forward from the strongest storm ever recorded in that country.

When Typhoon Haiyan made landfall on November 8, 2013, it damaged or destroyed more than 1 million homes, took more than 6,000 lives, and demolished agricultural land which left families without their typical sources of income. Today, thanks to generous donations, people in more than 100 barangays (towns) are recovering from the storm and rebuilding their lives. Meet a few of these resilient survivors in the slideshow above. For more information, visit redcross.org/Haiyan.
