Makeshift raft

A Filipino mother uses a large bowl as a raft to keep her child afloat on Sept. 30 as she wades through waist-high floodwaters created by Typhoon Ketsana south of Manila. Philippine authorities stepped up relief efforts this week for the storm, which killed more than 300 people and affected or displaced more than 2 million.
