Thousands of people were killed when one of the largest storms ever to make landfall struck the Philippines on 8 November 2013.

Winds of over 310 kmh (195 mph) caused widespread devastation - destroying buildings, roads and livelihoods.

Thanks to generous support from donors, Plan emergency teams were able to provide life-saving aid in the immediate aftermath - including drinking water kits for 200,000 people, shelter for 195,000 and education support for 44,000 children.

Our teams are now working with affected children, families and communities to build back better and stronger - covering long-term needs in education, livelihoods, child protection and disaster risk reduction.
