    People in the central Philippines are struggling to rebuild centuries-old churches damaged by a powerful earthquake six years ago.

    The earthquake killed more than 200 people and left thousands homeless.

    The restoration will be a long, slow process, to ensure that it is done correctly.

    Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Bohol, the Philippines.
