Video: A Typhoon Ravaged Family Still Celebrates Christmas

by World Vision Philippines

The Philippines has the longest Christmas celebration in the world. As early as September 1, you can hear Christmas songs over the radio. People start to put decorations in their houses, commercial and business establishments.  Everyone looks forward to the holiday, but children are the most excited.

In the communities where typhoon Haiyan caused death, destruction and despair, it’s almost impossible to see and feel the significance of the season. Yet these people remained resolute that amidst the rubble, Christmas hasn’t lost its real essence. On the contrary, it becomes more meaningful.

Join us in making Christmas memorable for children, families, and communities in the Philippines. http://www.worldvision.org.ph/sharing-christmas-joy
