Yolanda wash out house House in Tacloban city

Trip to Tacloban – 7 weeks after Yolanda hit Leyte

Just before Christmas time we went with a bus load full of relief goods to Tacloban, Leyte. Thousands of schoolbooks and general school – supplies were delivered to various schools as well as construction tools which are shared between many people to re-build their houses.

All this was made possible by the generous donations of many people.
