Typhoon survivors in Philippines prepare for Christmas
In the seaside town of typhoon-hit Tanauan in the Philippines, where nearly 60,000 people were affected by the typhoon, residents got ready for Christmas by putting up makeshift decorations.
On top of a tree in Tanuan, is a thank-you message to donors from across the world whose assistance to the relief effort significantly bolstered the amount from the Philippine government.
Christmas is one of the most important holidays in the predominantly Catholic Philippines, where festivities begin as early as September and last until January.
