BASEY, Philippines, Nov 5 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - His head bent as he plays with the red laces of his tattered sneakers, 13-year-old Joshua Villanueva haltingly recounts how he lost both his parents and two younger sisters last November.
Now living with elderly grandparents and a cousin who also lost a parent, Villanueva is one of dozens, possibly hundreds, of children orphaned by Typhoon Haiyan which killed or left missing some 7,000 people after ripping through the Philippines.
On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines. An estimated 16.1 million people were affected, with 1.1 million damaged or destroyed homes and as many as 4.1 million people displaced - nearly four times as many as those left homeless by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. At least 6,300 people were killed and another 5.9 million workers lost their livelihoods and sources of income.

Philippine communities shattered by Super Typhoon Haiyan a year ago are starting to bustle again as a mega-reconstruction effort takes root, but millions of survivors still endure brutal poverty and are dangerously exposed to the next big storm.
More than 7,350 people perished as Haiyan tore in off the Pacific Ocean with the strongest winds ever recorded on land and generated tsunami-like storm surges more than two-storeys high.
One year after Typhoon Yolanda ripped through the Visayas Region, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman recognizes that much work remains to be done, but expressed confidence that the “Building Back Better” principle of the Aquino Administration is on the right track.
Sec. Soliman believes that efforts to rehabilitate typhoon-ravaged communities may be far from perfect, but she said that the Philippines has made significant strides compared to other countries who were also affected by natural disasters.
MANILA, Nov 5 -- Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery (PARR) Secretary Panfilo Lacson has reported the establishment of a one-stop shop for resettlement to facilitate the building of permanent housing units in areas affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
In a press briefing in Malacañang on Tuesday, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said that Secretary Lacson made the report during a meeting convened by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa.

November 8 is precisely one year since the world’s strongest typhoon slammed the Philippines with unimaginable force. In the last 12 months, World Vision has continued to stand with survivors as they begin to rebuild their lives and look toward the future.
World Vision has exceeded its planned target reach of 750,000 individuals, already surpassing one million beneficiaries. Around 473,000 of these survivors were children.
On 8 November 2013 Super Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) swept across the Philippines affecting millions of lives. As international assistance began to pour in, the World Health Organization was one of the first agencies on the ground. The WHO worked with the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) as co-leads for the health cluster. Together the organisations began coordinating over 150 foreign medical teams and more than 500 tonnes of medical supplies and equipment that arrived in response.
