“After Typhoon Haiyan, we stayed up in the hills for around two weeks. Our house was totally destroyed, a crumbled ruin, and we had nowhere to go. There was a lot of crying.”

Marlito Sarda, Philippines

“It’s a simple home. But compared to four months of sleeping on scrap materials under a tarp, it is a palace. It will be much easier to take care of my nephews and keep them safe in this new house. I feel good about that.”
