ABS-CBN News revisits how typhoon Yolanda, one of the world’s strongest super typhoons, affected the lives of many Filipinos when it hit the country on 8 November 2013.
Six years after the country’s worst typhoon, survivors come forward to tell how they are rebuilding their lives and their difficult journey to healing, in a special documentary that will premiere on Sunday (November 17) at 10:15 am on ABS-CBN and iWant.
Aptly titled “Paglaum (hope), Magkasama sa Pagbangon,” the hour-long documentary produced by ABS-CBN DocuCentral features personal stories from survivors who bravely relived that haunting evening in November. They also shared what reignited hope during such a difficult time, and fueled their drive to rise above the agony.
“Paglaum, Magkasama sa Pagbangon” also touches on the outpouring of love and support of volunteers, donors, and who went above and beyond to extend assistance to typhoon-ravaged communities. Compassion for Yolanda-stricken communities continues to this day as “Paglaum” shows efforts of organizations like ABS-CBN Foundation’s Sagip Kapamilya to help victims recover, heal, and move forward with their lives.
Watch the heart-rending “Paglaum, Magkasama sa Pagbangon” documentary by the award-winning ABS-CBN DocuCentral team this Sunday (November 17) before “ASAP Natin ‘To” on ABS-CBN. Viewers can also catch it online via iWant. For more news on the latest documentaries, follow @DocuCentral on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
