In November 2013, super typhoon Haiyan made landfall over the eastern Visayan region of the Philippines, resulting in thousands of casualties and even more irrevocably changed lives. Immediate aid efforts were helpful but fleeting - The Helping Hands Philippines is a registered Canadian charity dedicated to improving the short- and long-term health of impoverished typhoon survivors. We provide yearly medical clinics and health education sessions, and we are working on local health capacity building and sustainability through the training of local community health workers who act as ongoing health resources to their communities throughout the year.
