Devastated lives & villages

By Julius D. Mariveles

A WEEK after super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) devastated Tacloban City and 44 other provinces of the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013, PCIJ Multimedia Director Julius D. Mariveles and a team of journalists visited the affected villages. He returned home with a bundle of photos that spoke of the wrath of Yolanda more than words could describe.


“Christian Aid funded this project/report as our contribution to the interest of the public’s right to know how the Yolanda funds are managed and used, and that the findings and recommendations are meant to feed into the policy discourse on Republic Act No. 10121 (The Philippine Risk Reduction and Management Plan of 2010) review and the Yolanda budget process.”
