Typhoon Haiyan

It is difficult to comprehend the enormity of Typhoon Haiyan's destructive power across the Philippines. To learn that the coastal city of Tacloban, on the eastern island of Leyte, was obliterated doesn't mean much without population figures - 200,000 -, but that's still too big a number to grasp. It's only when you look at these little girls that the scale becomes human. Are their parents alive or dead? Is there an extended family that can care for them? What if all their kin were swept away? How good are Philippines orphanages? No answers, but CLICK for photos and CLICK for video.
