When Typhoon Bopha (Pablo) hit the Philippines on 4 December 2012, it severely affected several regions – and some 6.2 million persons (over 1.2 million families) – along its course. The Philippines Department of Agriculture has estimated that Typhoon Bopha’s damage to crops is at more than USD 750 million. For rapid recovery of people’s livelihoods, women and men are working hand-in-hand to regain the life they had before Typhoon Bopha came.

For this Women’s Month, we celebrate the many women who are participating in WFP-supported livelihood-based Food and Cash for Work projects that help communities restore their sources of livelihood, which in turn will help them improve their access to food.
