Philippines' Heatwave: Relief Options For The Poor And The Affluent | An Unequal Heatwave


Share post:

Amid one of the most severe heatwaves in the Philippines’ history, Danica struggles to keep her four children cool. The single mother’s home in the slums of Manila offers scant protection from the sun, and she scavenges the streets at night to pay for water and ice – which are getting costlier.

In Valenzuela City, city officials deploy mobile shower trucks for residents who lack adequate water.

Meanwhile, businessman Patrick and his wife were able to move to a cooler mountainous suburb two hours from Manila. As yearly temperatures rise, he’s made a business out of using heat-repellent car window film to shield the house windows of those who can afford it.
