There’s one over there >>>>

For those of you that don’t know, last year I went to Tacloban to do some relief work in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan.  It wasn’t an organised thing.  A colleague in the US had family there, we both wanted to do something useful and we put our heads together.  We raised money – quite a bit as it turned out.  In June Jackie went out and used half of it on people identified locally who had lost livelihoods.  In August I went out with the rest of the money.

Last month we both went out at the same time, finally met, spent time together and revisited a lot of the people we’d helped support.  You can read my update  – should you be interested, here.  Jackie’s update is here.


And here are some of my favourite photos from then, if you just want a taster:
