Daily life is returning to those living in the Typhoon affected areas of the Philippines
Isla Culion, Palawan - In general, life in Culion goes on, this is due to recovery capacities inherent to the people. Traces of Haiyan are gradually recovering, trees, mangrove forest and fishing grounds are getting back to normal as well as the people of Culion.
Province of Dinagat Islands - The province is susceptible to landslide due to its land composition, moreover, the biggest concern is that it would be hard to implement housing or relocation of communities since most of the land in the province is classified as mineral reserves.
Province of Samar and Leyte - School year has started and some students are still having difficulties due to lack of classrooms and financial incapacities. Moreover, because of the typhoon Haiyan, these provinces are expected to be visited by His Holiness, Pope Francis on January 2015. And as per reports from the Vatican, the Pope wishes to visit the typhoon and earthquake survivors.
