1. This weekend, the faith arts and justice festival Greenbelt is taking place in Northamptonshire and I’m going to be showing portraits of typhoon Haiyan survivors that I took during my time in the Philippines earlier this year.

    The pop-up exhibition will last two hours on Monday morning (9-11) in a garden shed venue called The Allotment Gallery. Do pop in and say hi if you’re going to be around!


  2. This week I spent an afternoon in the Tearfund studio working on a fun new way to get you all involved in the brilliant No Child Taken campaign to protect 50,000 vulnerable children in 2014.

    Stay glued to Facebook and Twitter to find out how you can get involved in this tasty new development…

  8. Joseph Romero is a fisherman from Guiuan, the first place that typhoon Haiyan struck land in the Philippines on November 8, 2013.

    After days of searching for musicians, singers, or any type of music-maker who could provide some kind of soundtrack for a couple of short films I was making, I met Joseph.

    It soon became clear that Joseph had written a song directly about the typhoon, and that it was pretty great. His song had been played on the emergency radio station Radyo Bakdaw and when he started to play, children just poured out of the surrounding houses and started singing along!

    It was one of those moments that had to be shared, so I caught what I could of Joseph’s song in the little time we had with him.

    A group of Cub Scouts from Lincolnshire decided to write letters to children in Tacloban City to show their support to those affected by typhoon Haiyan, extend their friendship and ask about their experiences.

    Children from San Jose Central School in Tacloban City, Philippines, one of the most severely affected schools in the region, wrote back.

    Barbie (10), Arrianne (11) and Rolly James (12) read aloud the letters they wrote back to their new friends in England.


  10. Today, after spending a week in Manila helping set up a hub for Integral Disaster Response, we arrived in Tacloban City. 

    A week of UN security updates, meetings with NGOs working in the field, and partner briefings provided plenty of information about the situation, but inevitably fell short of preparing us for what we saw when we landed. 

    We were met by partners, World Renew, at the airport with its few remaining walls and then given a quick tour around before checking in at a local hotel. 

    This is just a brief update with a few of the images I took around the city this afternoon. Tomorrow I’ll be travelling to Guiuan in Samar to find out a bit more about how people are coping outside of the city, almost three months after typhoon Haiyan struck.
