After the Typhoon, Another Disaster: Oil Spill Endangers Community in the Philippines

The municipality of Estancia in Iloilo Province, one of the areas in the Philippines hardest hit by Typhoon Haiyan, was dealt another crippling blow by the deadly storm earlier this week: a barge owned by the national electric company, containing over a million liters of fuel, crashed during the typhoon and has begun leaking oil into the water. So far, approximately 200,000 liters of oil have already contaminated rivers, sanitation infrastructure, and houses up to a mile from the spill site.

Saving Lives and Livelihoods: the Race for Recovery After Typhoon Haiyan

In the catastrophic wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Action Against Hunger’s first priority has been saving lives. But saving livelihoods—the ways that people earn money and access food—is equally important for recovery. So while our emergency response teams aim to provide immediate lifesaving assistance to some 650,000 typhoon survivors, we’re also developing strategies to help restore economic self-sufficiency to the vulnerable communities in Tacloban and Capiz. 

Bringing Help, Hope and H2O: Providing Clean Water for Typhoon Haiyan Survivors

Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation has affected more than thirteen million people across nine regions of the Philippines. In Capiz, one of the hardest-hit areas, nearly 700,000 people have been affected. One of the most vulnerable places in Capiz is the small coastal village of Dayhagan—here, the typhoon destroyed hundreds of people’s homes and livelihoods, and contaminated their water supply.

Baby Tents: Providing a Safe Place to Help Children Heal After Typhoon Haiyan

In honor of Universal Children’s Day, we’re focusing on Action Against Hunger’s commitment to improving the health and well-being of children around the world. There is perhaps no better recent example of how we’re promoting children’s health than in the Philippines, where our teams are hard at work providing emergency assistance to displaced typhoon survivors—including thousands of vulnerable children.  

The Philippines Exhausts Its Alphabet of Natural Disasters

Perhaps it is only this running out of letters -- these A to Z typhoons -- that, to some extent, accounts for the attitude of Tacloban's citizens: always self-controlled, smiling, friendly, and polite, they keep on doing whatever they can to improve their situation. Many have lost every last thing they had, and many still have no idea what happened to their families. Numerous children are on their own, with no living relatives.

Typhoon Haiyan: fears not all survivors have been reached

"There's an urgent call now for us to monitor the movement of foreign aid funds for [the typhoon] so they will go exactly where they're supposed to: to the survivors," Richard Moya, the budget undersecretary and chief information officer, said in a statement, announcing the creation of a website to facilitate such scrutiny.

The Philippines government said more than $270m in foreign aid has been pledged –although Action Against Hunger warned this weekend that promised donations often fail to materialise after natural disasters.
