On November 8th 2013, the Philippines were struck by Typhoon Haiyan, killing 4,500 people, destroying one million houses, leaving 4.4 million people homeless and affecting 13 million in total. A beautiful place was turned into a ruin. To overcome this nightmare, the Belgian 12-12 Consortium launched Haiyan 21-21, a joint operation between five major charities.
Caritas, Unicef, Handicap International, Oxfam and Doctors of the World all needed help in reconstructing the disaster area.
