Filipinos recently remembered the third anniversary of Haiyan, the biggest typhoon recorded in almost a century. Haiyan killed thousands, displaced four million people and destroyed 500,000 homes. Emergency response and preparedness is a top priority for World Vision Philippines on this island nation that experiences frequent typhoons .
Other priorities for children in the Philippines are child protection, education, health and nutrition and economic empowerment. World Vision Philippines promotes thriving communities where peace and justice prevail and all can enjoy security, opportunity and happiness. We do this by coming alongside the poor and vulnerable, building their capacity to be agents of sustainable change.
