On Nov 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan swept across Philippines and devastated Tacloban, a city south east of the capital, Manila. More than 6,000 people lost their lives and many were missing or displaced. 

In 2015, the town still reeling in the aftermath of the tragedy, a few colleagues and I embarked on a journey to Tacloban and joined hands to do what we could in that short time we had to help in their rebuilding efforts.

Fast forward today in September 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut has just stormed Philippines yet again. 

The following set of a few images were able to be taken back in 2015 during my time in Tacloban.
