Typhoon Haiyan

Typhoon Haiyan has affected 16 million people in the Philippines. Up to 1.2 million are over 60.

Since the typhoon hit in November 2013, we've helped over 140,000 people rebuild their lives by providing them with food, shelter, cash transfers and psychological support. Watch Rebecca Rita's story of how we've helped her earn a living again by harvesting rice:

Anacleta is 77 and a widow. She said: "My house has almost completely collapsed. I've lived here for 25 years.

"I'm still sleeping here. We have nowhere else to go. I climb a plank to get to the house and sleep on a slope. My greatest need is to repair my house."
