Rebuilding houses in the Philippines
Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines last November. It was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall, and in the Philippines it was the deadliest typhoon on record. More than 6,000 people lost their lives, and millions were left homeless.
27-year-old Maria Lukowska was in Warsaw working as a lawyer when she first heard about the disaster, and decided to help the typhoon’s victims. Two weeks later she flew to the Philippines to work as a volunteer and until today she’s still on Bantayan Island organizing aid logistics, health care, and new shelters for families.
