Cyclone Evan hit Samoa on December 13, 2012, causing flash floods and widespread damage across the country. The cyclone left 12 people dead; thousands of people across the region sought shelter in evacuation centres; the homes and livelihoods of approximately 13,000 people were completely destroyed.
Oxfam delivered thousands of litres of safe, clean water across Samoa and, with our partner organisation in Samoa Women in Business Development Inc (WIBDI), we supported farmers and their families to rebuild their livelihoods.
