Published on 02 Jan 2014

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) devastated areas in nine regions of the Philippines affecting over 14 million people and displaced approximately 4.1 million people. While many affected people have begun returning home and are either rebuilding their houses or setting up temporary makeshift shelters, a large number still remain displaced from their homes and staying with relatives or in informal settlements. As response programmes continue across affected areas, the major priorities for the Humanitarian Country Team are shelter and rebuilding livelihoods.
