Girls wash their clothes on a stretch of coast in Tacloban where homes were flattened by the storm surge and ships crashing onto the shore. Oxfam has reached almost 550,000 people with relief in the first three months of the response, including clean water to more than 200,000 people by supporting the government to repair and fix broken pipes. (Photo: Eleanor Farmer/Oxfam)
