Philippines: washed into the sea

Small truck washed into the sea

This is another disaster for Basey, a small town on Samar island. The storm surge of super-typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) washed this waste collection truck into Basey’s harbour, leaving Basey without household waste collection. The waste piled up in the streets, and Basey is relying on the United Nations for waste collection until today, more than 100 days after Yolanda.
