Typhoon Haiyan

RTX15LP0
Fishing in Fridges - 20 Nov 2013
Images from the Philippines where fridges are being transformed into fishing boats. Usually a fisherman catches a fish and puts it in the fridge. In one typhoon-wrecked village, fishermen are putting themselves in the fridge and then going fishing.

Typhoon Haiyan crashed into the central Philippines on Nov. 8, laying waste to just about everything in its path, including all the long, stylish fishing boats moored along beaches. More than 4,000 people, including poor farmers and fishermen, were killed. Fishing families in Tanauan, 20 km (12 miles) south of the hardest-hit city of Tacloban, found a solution - they
have been going to sea in boats made out of fridges picked up from among the rubble after the storm hit 12 days ago.

Fishermen carry a boat made from a broken fridge to the beach in Tanauan November 20, 2013. After losing their boats and houses in the Typhoon Haiyan, fishermen of a destroyed village in Tanauan started building two-seated boats made of abandoned refrigerators and some wood. The first boat was made by a fisherman, whose children gave him the idea as they wanted to play in it, and soon others followed. The Philippines and international armed forces and aid agencies are struggling to get help to devastated areas due to the extent of the destruction from Typhoon Haiyan, which has left more than 4,000 dead and 4 million people displaced.
