18 November 2013 Last updated at 09:24 GMT

As the storm-ravaged city of Tacloban struggles to rebuild, the city's employees are starting to return to work.

One of them is city administrator Tecson Lim - tasked with co-ordinating much of Tacloban's rebuilding.

That job has brought long hours and an emotional toll.

The man who once kept the city running, now has to salvage what is left and start from scratch.
