The actress joined UNICEF Ireland to launch a new campaign to raise the voices of children in emergencies.

Homes, schools, hospitals, public water systems and the vaccination cold chain have now been repaired or rebuilt thanks to donations from Ireland and all over the world.

Speaking about her trip Evanna said: “Everywhere you go there’s the sound of building and people reconstructing things. It’s just so amazing to see how strong the human spirit is.”

“Despite them having nothing, despite everything being wiped away and going back to basics. They still have so much hope.”

More than a third of children in Tacloban were living in poverty before the Typhoon devastated their homes and communities.

Evanna visited severely malnourished children recovering in hospital and immunised newborn babies to protect them from preventable
diseases.
