Six months after, government records would show that almost 30,000 were injured and more than a thousand remained missing. And despite the unprecedented outpouring of  humanitarian assistance, recovery work was frustratingly slow, especially in Tacloban City where post-disaster relief and aid seemingly became mired in political contestations and general disarray.

Happy Children-ECR

Every child has the right to live in safe, secure, healthy and sustainable environment. This right is enshrined in the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child and, explicitly or implicitly, in the Constitutions of most, if not all, countries. It is evident that each time the environment is harmed or destroyed, the rights of children are violated, or are effectively denied them. Without a safe and sustainable environment, it is difficult to imagine how the children can enjoy their basic rights to survival, protection, participation and development.

Globalization has not always benefited people at the local level.”
