The 47-minute documentary After the Storm: Building the Pope Francis Village is an inspiring journey that follows poor coastal communities in the Philippines who lost everything to Super Typhoon Haiyan. When local organizations supported by Development and Peace –Caritas Canada arrive to work alongside these communities, they are confronted by survivors who are dispossessed, living in tents, dependent on aid, and facing eviction from the land they have always known.
But what happens when you bring the people together? When they are given a voice and a chance to be heard? When they know how to take action?
Find out in After the Storm, as Development and Peace works with 550 families to transform a piece of land into new homes, a new community, and new lives.
