Hannah Has Hopes After Typhoon Haiyan
Hannah, only nine years old, shared how her family tried to escape the wrath of Typhoon Haiyan a day before it hit the province where she lives.
Recognizing the danger the typhoon might bring, her father decided to seek shelter and bring the entire family to one of the government buildings. Her relatives joined them soon after.
“I was scared because the wind was very strong. The walls and windows were shaking. Within moments, we realized water started flooding in.”
Hannah stared blankly at the wall. “Our house has no roof now.”
When their house was destroyed, Hannah’s family lost everything in it. Now without food, shelter, and a change of clothes, Hannah is desperate for help.
Hannah explained that her family has to stay in the building for the next month. Though the conditions in the Philippines have left thousands of people devastated, for now Hannah is just happy that her family survived that fateful morning.
Hopefully, Hannah will feel safe and secure again soon. Kids like Hannah need caring people like you to support Save the Children's response efforts.
