People continue to rebuild their lives five months after Typhoon Haiyan struck the coast on Nov. 8, 2013, leaving more than 6000 dead and many more homeless. Although many businesses and services are functioning, electricity and housing continue to be the main issues, with many residents still living in temporary housing conditions due to "No Build" areas preventing them from rebuilding their homes.

This week marks Holy Week across the Philippines with many people attending religious activities.
