November 2013, the strongest storm in history hit the Philippines. Nothing on its path was spared. Mountains bowed down.
In January, more than 60 days after the storm, we went around the different parts of Leyte and Samar to document the state of the different Rural Health Units. In 4 hours, an entire country was changed. Stories of grief and gratitude were shared in one breath. It’s easy to forget people and cities when life goes on so differently from where we stand, these photographs are an attempt at remembering.
Some of the photographs published on World Health Organization’s Rising Anew Photo Book and personal favourites from the assignment.
