Recovery in the Philippines, One Month after Typhoon Haiyan
While it’s been over a month since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines, Penn State students are working to ensure the victims continue to receive support for recovery. WPSU’s Kate Lao Shaffner has personal connections to the Philippines. She reports recovery is ongoing, but there’s reason to be optimistic.
