Three weeks after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, more than 200 Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) staff were working on the ground alongside several hundred Filipino colleagues. They have set up projects on the islands of Leyte, Panay and Samar, some of the worst affected areas, and continue to work in Tacloban.

Tanauan, a small town of 50,000 inhabitants located 12 miles south of Tacloban, is one of the worst-affected areas in the Philippines. Some 95 percent of the houses were destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan and the population has only received minimal aid since. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) arrived in Tanauan Tuesday and is running a medical clinic.
