As their 4-year old son Khainer looks on, Eirene Macalalad hands a cement block to her husband Imarito as he constructs a septic tank at their home in Bacubac, a seaside neighborhood in Basey in the Philippines province of Samar that was hit hard by Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013. The storm was known locally as Yolanda. Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance, is sponsoring the construction of bathrooms with septic systems for houses in the village where existing systems were destroyed by the typhoon's unusually high storm surge.
