Philippines: Join Marinel’s calls for climate justice
Marinel Sumook Ubaldo was a teenager when Typhoon Yolanda destroyed her village in the province of Samar, the Philippines. Five years later, the Philippine government still hasn’t provided liveable housing for the people affected.
In 2013 Typhoon Yolanda killed over 6,000 people in the Philippines and left millions without homes. Since then, the government has built less than half the homes needed. Marinel also says that these houses often don’t have water, electricity or toilets, and some are built in places where it is impossible to earn a living.
Stand with Marinel and other climate change survivors: call on President Duterte to provide access to water, electricity, safe and adequate housing, and livelihood opportunities for the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda.
