  • I am amazed by the resilience of the Typhoon victims (...) The community spirit is extraordinary. The people are so clearly focused on looking forward and rebuilding a better future."

    Yoshiteru Uramoto, ILO Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific
  • It’s just heart wrenching to think of the thousands of lives that were lost and the millions of livelihoods that were devastated (...) We need to come together to put the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan on a path that leads to a better life."

    Lawrence J. Johnson, ILO Philippine Office
  • The scale of the destruction, and the suffering, is truly shocking (...) relief and reconstruction needs will be enormous. We urge the international community to be generous in their support."
