This natural calamity made headlines around the world, leading other nations and organizations outside the country to provide various forms of assistance to assist in the country’s recovery.

The national government even released a total budget of P17.69 billion from December for the recovery and rehabilitation of communities devastated by the super typhoon.

After 6 months have passed, what progress has been made in the affected areas given all these assistance?
