Philippines: Typhoon Haiyan Aftermath Part I

 
 

Several months after Typhoon Haiyan (known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines) devastated a number of Philippine provinces, leaving more than 6000 dead and roughly 6 million displaced, photojournalist Herman Lumanog visited the affected region for The Diplomat. He reports that even though people there might be without roofs or even homes, there are not without hope.
