UNICEF is on the ground helping children and families affected by the Super Typhoon Bopha, which hit the south-eastern coast of Mindanao in the Philippines in early December 2012.
Heavy rains and winds of 175 kph slammed into the island on 2 December, resulting in the disruption and displacement for over 2.3 million children.
Climate change has severely affected the Philippines and this storm is one of many disasters to hit the island in recent times. These photos show how its people coping with this latest disaster and how UNICEF is helping its people with their recovery.
Eleven-year-old April is one of over 2.3 million children whose lives have been disrupted by Typhoon Bopha.
