Two years after the typhoon according to the survivors: How children and their communities perceive their lives now 2 years after Typhoon Haiyan devastated Eastern Visayas

For 2 years now, Plan International has worked with children and their families affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines on 8 November 2013 - claiming 6,300 lives and displacing millions of people. 

In October 2015, Plan International talked with 339 affected girls, boys, women and men from 8 municipalities and one city across Eastern Visayas to learn more about their current situation and prevailing needs. 

This report records the insights and opinions of these children and communities on areas of their lives that have improved 2 years on since the disaster, as well as areas that have remained the same or become worse.
