Access to education – Rebuilding after Haiyan

Sitting here in the air conditioned bubble of the departure lounge of Iloilo airport, waiting to fly back to Manila, my thoughts go back to some of the people I met in in Iloilo.

One place in particular comes to mind.

CBM works with partner RBI (Resources for the Blind), who ensure that children with visual impairments – and they may also have hearing, learning or mobility difficulties – have the chance to access education.

In November, Typhoon Haiyan destroyed many of the buildings that are used for these classes, effectively ending education for the children.

Philippines rises up after Typhoon Haiyan

Report
Caritas

Caritas is shifting its focus in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines from emergency relief to longer-term recovery.

Haiyan (local name ‘Yolanda’) tore across the Philippines on Friday 8 November, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. It is believed to be the strongest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall.

The storm’s impact has been enormous, with over 16 million people affected and over 4 million forced from their homes. Over 1.1 million homes were damaged, about half of them completely destroyed.

Report
IRIN

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, April 15 (PIA) – In the aftermath of super Typhoon Yolanda, the female police officers have taken a more active role in the rehabilitation of Yolanda affected communities.

They have become more than patrol guards and security officers. They help rebuild relationships and facilite community participation, the glue that sticks the community together.
