With the average of 20 typhoons hitting Philippines each year. People are still living in unsafe structures that affects the day to day of their livelihoods during and after natural disaster. According to Internal Displacement, earthquakes, floods and violence have driven millions away from their homes in 2018 alone. This acceleration in displacement can be felt in cities with growing slums and outdated infrastructure.
