After cyclone Yolanda hit in November 2013, many areas of the Philippine archipelago are completely cut off from the outside world. Streets as well as maritime routes are blocked. The first US army helicopters, dropping tents and food, didn’t arrive for three days. Months after the catastrophe, many families are still living inside the slowly rotting tents. They are waiting for one of the many help programmes to reach them.
The Alday family of seven has been living in these conditions ever since the cyclone. I accompany them for one day of their lives, living between hope for the future and fear for another rage of nature.
