Five years after Haiyan, survivors light the way
Exactly five years ago today, Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck central Philippines.

Today, we remember the over 7,000 people whose lives were lost.

We also remember how countless lives and communities were forever changed by the super typhoon. Too often, we gloss over the devastations left by disasters and get overwhelmed by the enormous challenge of recovering and rebuilding.

But millions of Haiyan survivors remind us, today and every day, that beyond falling victim to the super typhoon, they are doing what they can to not only survive but even thrive in the midst of adversity.
