HRH The Princess Royal flew to Leyte to visit a community of Typhoon Yolanda survivors that is supported by the charity.

On March 18, Princess Anne and Save the Children Philippines visited the typhoon-stricken Leyte province whose people have been in the process of rebuilding their lives and restoring their houses since Typhoon Yolanda hit in November 2013.

On the effect that The Princess Royal's visit will have on the operations in the country, Save the Children Philippines Director Ned Olney said: “Having Her Royal Highness visiting Save the Children projects is a huge boost to the staff and communities who need to be reminded that they’re not forgotten after such an incredible process of recovery across the country.”
