Video: Part 2 of ‘Into The Haze’, our 2015 Southeast Asian Haze Crisis documentary

As Singaporeans rage and complain about the smoggy conditions blanketing our city skyline, the people of Pekanbaru, Indonesia have it a lot worst when it comes to the haze. 

As one of the epicentres of the haze crisis, the capital of Riau, Sumatra has indeed suffered the brunt of it in terms of economic damage and even human life. In the second part of our documentary, Coconuts TV checks out the hauntingly empty airport runway and dropped by Pekanbaru City Hall, which holds a makeshift ward for sick babies from low-income families. Stay tuned for the final episode of Into The Haze next week.
