Rawis/Anibong

Tacloban, January 28th, 2014 - In the Rawis and Anibong Bay districts, where 8 boats were washed ashore by the typhoon and killed hundreds of people, the smell is terrible and dead bodies are still being found under the rubble.

 

The lack of proper housing forced some of the survivors to look for shelter inside the same boats which brought destruction and death just a few months before.

 

Picture extrapolated from the "Letters to Tacloban" reportage.

8 November 2013, typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines.

What was left behind was a wounded country with cities such as Tacloban, completely destroyed.

The government received help from many countries and international NGOs, but the reconstruction plan is far from being completed.

 

The core of this movie is the story of a group of children who relocated to Calabanga after the disaster, and the delivery of their letters to their families in Tacloban.

 

From Manila to Calabanga, through Legazpi and Tacloban, this documentary highlights the slow and painful process of both physical and emotional reconstruction after the strongest typhoon ever recorded, hit the Philippines.
