Typhoon Haiyan washed the Libutars house away half a year ago now. They lived by a river, and they had to resettle to the other bank - under a bridge. Having lost everything, it's the most affordable roof they found. Meanwhile they are trying to save money, only to rebuild their house using the same plot and the same materials.
