Typhoon Haiyan survivors weave mats in a cave in Basey, Eastern Samar, in central Philippines
Typhoon Haiyan survivors weave mats in a cave in Basey, Eastern Samar, in central Philippines November 6, 2014. A year after one of the world's most powerful storms smashed into the Philippines, a group of women are stitching their lives back together by weaving colourful reeds used in handicrafts sold by the world's top retailers. Sitting in one of the caves dotting the seaside highway of Basey town in central Philippines, about a dozen women weave the reed plant, known as "tikog", which is sold to sustain their families still struggling to make ends meet after Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,000 dead or missing on November 8, 2013. Amongst the despair and devastation wrought by Haiyan - the strongest storm ever recorded to hit land - hundreds of women weavers have emerged as the main breadwinners in their families.
