Typhoon Haiyan is being likened to the 2004 Asian Tsunami in terms of scale and devastation. 10,000 people have been killed. Hundreds of thousands are homeless. There’s little clean water. No electricity. At a time like this, older people are particularly vulnerable. We need to act now.
It’s crucial to act now – we are already helping thousands of older people in the Philippines, but we can’t help them without your support.
Thank you. Chris Roles, Director
And by the way, Nestle is draining developing countries’ groundwater
Nestlé is draining developing countries’ groundwater to make its Pure Life bottled water, destroying countries’ natural resources before forcing its people to buy their own water back.
Now Nestlé is moving into Pakistan and sucking up the local water supply, rendering entire areas uninhabitable in order to sell mineral-enriched water to the upper class as well as people in the US and EU. Meanwhile the poor watch their wells run dry and their children fall ill from dirty water.
