Inspired by the Resilience of the Children
Breanna and Christine (Philippine Super Typhoon 2013 victims) have messages for you.
“I am very happy to be back in school with my classmates. We will read and write again,” seven year old and first grader Breanna says.
Eleven year old and fifth grader Christine shares her gladness too, “I am excited because the start of classes means I will continue to learn.”
These are some of the stories of children affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan that left a trail of destruction – millions homeless, thousands dead and school buildings in ruins.
Both Breanna and Christine are World Vision sponsored children and were among the thousands students in Leyte who came back to school.
Some of them have oversized clothes. Others were dressed too tight. But they didn’t mind. They brought nothing with them, yet their faces were beaming with smiles.
Even without a paper and a pen, a majority of students returned to their damaged classrooms.
Child Friendly Space (CFS) set up by World Vision just weeks after Haiyan provides a safe place for children to continue learning, playing and start coming to terms with the disaster’s effects.

3 children x 36 months (3 years) x RM65 = RM7020.00
