Background of Typhoon Haiyan: The Philippines is still in an urgent state of calamity due to what has been described by the mainstream media as the worst storm in recorded history last November 2013 – Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. The Social Welfare and Development Department reported that the storm affected 4.28 million people in 270 towns and cities spread across 36 provinces in Central Philippines. Super Typhoon Yolanda packed a blow on Philippine structures 3.5 times more forceful than Hurricane Katrina in 2005. As many as 10,000 lives have been claimed thus far and it is estimated many thousands more will perish due to homelessness, hunger, dehydration, and lack of medical aid. The lack of infrastructure, extreme poverty and neglect from the Philippine government continues to worsen the devastation of the many thousands of people who have been impacted. Haiyan killed about 6,000 people and destroyed many homes and infrastructure in the Visayas region, and until now, families are still rebuilding their lives and homes.
