Not long after Typhoon Haiyan made landfall on the Phillippines, so too did the clowns. Volunteers gave free performances and held workshops for those impacted by the super typhoon. Many of the country’s most vulnerable population lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones. The typhoon landed on the Phillippines on November 8, 2013, and though it wrecked havoc across southeast Asia, the Phillippines was hit hardest with waves eight meters high crashing down on the island. Its damages total nearly $3 Billion USD and the storm took more than 6,000 lives.
