Typhoon Haiyan (Super Typhoon Yolanda) made landfall in the Philippines on 8 November 2013, killing 6,300 and affecting more than 16 million people.

“Roofless, Homeless, but not Hopeless” - A hand-painted message on a banner, hanging above a shop that was destroyed on the outskirts of the port city of Ormoc, represented a spirit of hope and resilience that resonated throughout the disaster zone. Refusing to be defeated by the disaster, the survivors were determined to "bangon", or rise, again.

“Five years on” - Inspired by the survivors’ strength and resilience, the Singapore Red Cross organises an exhibition, “Bangon. Arise” featuring first-hand accounts and impact stories of Filipinos, engaged by photojournalists at sites funded and rebuilt by the Singapore Red Cross - post typhoons Ketsana, Bopha and Haiyan.

Witness the power of humanity, the early recovery efforts, and the thoughtful efforts to ‘build back better,’ across projects in health, education, housing and community, throughout the Philippines.

Black Cat Theatre - Sentiments of the Heart ” tells the story of two different generations living in the early days of Singapore, as they come together to build new friendships and forge the kampung spirit along the way, despite differences in their cultures and languages. The second act of the play brings the story to the 1950s and 60s, following a family of 3 sisters and their mother as they navigate through the trials and tribulations of family, love and relationships.

In support of the Singapore Red Cross and under the direction of the Dance Ensemble Singapore (DES) Founder and Artistic Director, Mdm Yan Choong Lian, and Concert organising chairperson cum producer, Ms Terene Seow; with choreography by DES Dance Director, Sharon Low, DES Creative Director, Cai Shiji and DES Resident Choreographer, Goh Yan Dan; and performed by Terene Seow, Ang Tallin, Jack Ye Zheng Wen, Kuan Seck Mui and more, “Sentiments of the Heart” will be presented in the form of song and dance drama where audiences can expect a light-hearted musical performance with a ‘Singaporean’ flavour.
