This story was written by Jessa Cabonegro, a radio presenter at Radyo Bakdaw, a station established in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan to help get information to affected people.
Two months after the typhoon Yolanda, Diane Tiburcio still hadn't heard from her sister, brother-in-law and their family. Diane is like others from outside the affected areas who are still desperately hunting for their loved ones. Lack of communication is still a widespread problem. Luckily a temporary radio station launched in Guiuan, Eastern Samar brings hope to people like Diane.
