TACLOBAN, Philippines, 6 December 2013 – Frances Ramandiman, 10, claimed the little guitar from the UNICEF box for a few minutes, enough time to pick out a few chords and practice strumming. He is a beginner in so many things, yet Frances is a veteran and a survivor of one of the worst storms the world has ever seen.
And the guitar is his just for a moment before another child takes a turn.
There is also a drum in the box, played with great gusto in a place where children rarely play outdoors
