Ignore the persistent denials and internal arguments about who was to blame, the fact remains the Filipino government failed its people. their inability to adequately prepare for, or indeed react to this catastrophic event undeniably contributing to the huge loss of life. Not that theyll ever admit it. This is the story of how one English family dealt with the life changing storm and despite the odds survived...just. Its impossible to describe but when people do ask me I say think The Wizard of Oz and then multiply by ten.

Not really, no amount of CGI effects could capture the reality of being under attack from such a primeval force. Theres no doubt we were lucky just getting through the storm but the real struggle came afterwards. I guess the mud, sweat and mosquitos came with the territory but I never expected the prejudice, or the unbelievable denial by the British Government to actually accept we had a problem.

We were dubbed Yolanda survivors but in retrospect I think The expendables would have been more apt. Life goes on but for those of us who were involved it is doubtful we will ever escape its legacy, especially those still living in Tacloban who can do little else than await the arrival of Yolanda 2. In a country acknowledged as one of the most corrupt in Asia the saga continues with signs the aid money is already disappearing or being misused while those who need it still live in temporary shelters.
