Mormon Volunteers Building Homes for Typhoon Haiyan Victims


Three months after a devastating typhoon struck the Philippines, relief efforts by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continue in some of the hardest hit areas of the country.

Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on 8 November, 2013, destroying over a million homes and leaving more than 6,000 people dead. Mormons were among those who lost family members and homes. Disaster response has now turned to relief efforts as volunteers are learning to build homes for residents still without shelter.
