Boys ride on a makeshift boat made from refrigerator foam near their coastal village in Tacloban city in central Philippines November 5, 2014. Jerry Yaokasin, Tacloban's vice mayor, said the city's recovery so far has been remarkable but much remains to be done. About 3,000 people are still living in dangerous areas and many more are still struggling to rebuild a livelihood. Tacloban, to all intent and purposes, is now a functioning city with much of the debris cleared, streets buzzing with traffic, children back at school and buildings patched up.

Gerry Baclayo, 44, sits by a sack of rice at his home in Barangay Cancaiyas, Basey town in Western Samar province October 17, 2014. Baclayo has been a coconut farmer for 15 years, working on the land his forefathers bequeathed him. But Typhoon Haiyan destroyed 80 percent of his coconut trees, and he has turned to rice farming to make ends meet. He says his income has reduced, but with newly planted coconut trees taking six to eight years before they reach maturity, he says he will stick to rice farming. REUTERS/Thin Lei Win
