Lorilee helped her community survive Typhoon Haiyan

Lorilee's Story


Working with local health workers to rebuild after Typhoon Haiyan

helping her community survive Typhoon Haiyan

First to respond|Toughest week|Helping others

In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan – known locally as Yolanda – hit the Philippines. Lorilee was working as a nurse at the time and feared for her life and those of her patients as nearby houses collapsed, not least the two newborn babies in her care. 

First on the scene she was quick to support her community. In the toughest week just after the typhoon, when the roads were blocked and supplies were diminished, she used her skills and determination to help others survive.
