Earlier this week, our team traveled east to Palo, in Leyte province, to deliver food, cooking supplies and hygiene kits to families struggling to recover after Typhoon Haiyan. Palo took a direct hit from the devastating storm (known locally as Yolanda) and nearly all of its 62,000 residents have been affected.
The trip also marked the launch of an integrated program to address the protection and wellbeing of children in the aftermath of this disaster. In the photos above, see the new safe spaces where kids can play while we help their parents meet their basic needs.
