Summary

We must come together, now, to get farmers & fishermen back on their feet - to rise above the loss and recover, to rehabilitate farmlands and fishing industry - taking strategic steps to guarantee food security through livelihood development. Through the generosity of the GlobalGiving Community, PBSP proposes to provide in kind material assistance & community projects to address immediate relief needs & long-term recovery challenges of Farming & Fishing Communities in Haiyan-hit Philippines.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Superstorm Haiyan tore through 41 provinces in the Visayan Region of the Philippines, mostly comprised of Islands. In Northern Cebu alone, 10,000 farming families and 15,000 fisherfolk are among affected residents. Farmers were set to harvest crops in December but there is nothing left to harvest as they were blown away by 320Kph winds. Fishermen lost their boats as they were damaged by fallen coconut trees or crashed into pieces. It will take 3 months at least to get them back on their feet.

How will this project solve this problem?

PBSP's pooled cash resources will provide recovery aid & sustainable solutions so that farmers & fishermen will get back on their feet more quickly. It will restore dignity, hasten return to normalcy & regain livelihood. Families need to restore their homes. Debris must be cleared from the land/irrigation system. Agricultural land needs to be rehabilitated. Farm tools/equipment lost must be replaced. New fishing boats/nets must be acquired to help them go back out to sea.

Potential Long Term Impact

Farmer and Fishermen make up 25% of total population, but they are at the base of the pyramid in social standing. Helping them get back on their feet today will empower them to rebuild their lives and give them an opportunity to progress upward. The benefits of this project will be felt by their families and the larger community of 86,000 people and impact the whole Philippines through their contribution to food security and the national economy.
