After Yolanda: What Children Think, Need and Recommend

Overview

After Yolanda: What Children Think, Need and Recommend

41% of those affected by Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) in the Philippines are children - yet there have been no systematic efforts to engage children in their needs or priorities for response and recovery.

This report documents the findings of a consultation by Plan International, Save the Children, World Vision and Unicef with 124 children and young people in Capiz, Cebu, Iloilo, Leyte and East and West Samar.

It shows that children's priorities right now include rebuilding homes, returning to school and restoring electricity.

Read the report to find out more, hear children's views on the humanitarian situation - and see what they think can be done to improve the response.
