Desperate for food

, November 17, 2013

Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan react as a US military helicopter delivers aid to their isolated village north of Tacloban, on November 17. Mobbed by hungry villagers, US military helicopters dropped desperately needed aid into remote areas of the typhoon-ravaged central Philippines, as survivors of the disaster flocked to ruined churches on Sunday to pray for their uncertain future. The Philippines is facing up to an enormous rebuilding task from Typhoon Haiyan, which killed at least 3,681 people and left 1,186 missing, with many isolated communities yet to receive significant aid despite a massive international relief effort.  Reuters/Damir Sagolj
