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.

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.
