The people on the island of Panay were living on coconuts and dirty drain water before Goal's aid arrived.
Over 60,000 people are homeless here and by day seven no help had arrived for them. It's just another example of the large volumes of people whose lives were destroyed by Yolanda.
About 130 people have been confirmed dead in this town. The smell of decomposing bodies fills the streets in 30 plus degrees as relatives cannot afford to embalm the corpses but others have been buried in shallow graves.
Goal distributed nearly 3,000 care packages here today which contained a blanket, paracetamol, water, rice and tinned goods. Goal has received close to €100,000 in donations from the Irish public so far.
The typhoon hit here at 4.30am and ravaged the town for 10 full hours as roofs flew through the sky and huge trees collapsed around the locals in the dark.
With very little help and depleting supplies the resilient people of the town have already began to clear the roads of debris and rebuilding their homes with fallen trees.
