One Year Anniversary of Typhoon Haiyan
Sister Nida Fe Chavez, a Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto, pictured far right, was one of eight Church representatives who traveled to the Philippines in late August 2014 with Development and Peace to meet Typhoon Haiyan’s refugees. She saw firsthand the devastation and the rebuilding efforts of D & P working with its Filipino and international partners.
Typhoon Haiyan, also known as Typhoon Yolanda, was one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. It devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, on November 8, 2013.
On the one-year anniversary of this event, D & P has created a video of the delegation which can be seen on YouTube by clicking here.
Other resources include material on the Development and Peace website and the Typhoon Haiyan: One Year Later video.
