In Photos: Recovery 2 years after Typhoon Haiyan

The Red Cross responded quickly in the immediate aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, reaching 1.3 million people with emergency relief. Following the typhoon, the Canadian Red Cross deployed its Emergency Field Hospital in the city of Ormoc, where they admitted 1,226 patients, performed 114 surgeries and supported 418 deliveries while in operation. One of the ways the Canadian Red Cross is continuing to help is by working closely with the Philippine Red Cross to implement an Emergency Field Hospital Readiness Program.  This training makes sure that personnel are prepared and able to sustain a field hospital in the event of a disaster.

Two years after the typhoon, the Canadian Red Cross, partnered with the Spanish, German and Netherlands Red Cross, continues to help survivors recover and rebuild a stronger and healthier future.
