Philippines: Bringing the health response into focus

WHO/F. Guerrero

Carmelito Bandoy is thankful that his family is safe, but he lost his house in Guiuan and most of his flock of game fowl. He used to breed and sell the birds for a living, but now he’s contemplating work as a seaman so that he can afford to rebuild his home and provide for his family. For many families in the region, the road to recovery will be a long one—requiring sustained international attention, support and resources.
