In December 2011, Tropical Storm Washi hit the Philippines and thousands of children and families lost their homes. The Philippines is one of ten countries judged to be most vulnerable to climate change, bearing the brunt of storms and floods.
These photos show how climate change has affected Philippine children, and how UNICEF has helped them recover and prepare for future disasters.
Dariel, 13, stands by the river near his grandmother's house in Cagayan de Oro. During Tropical Storm Washi, he had to climb onto the roof of his grandmother's house to survive. The family received a hygiene kit from UNICEF containing bucket, soap and other toiletries which helped them to stay healthy in the weeks after the flooding.
