This project will provide food packs to 750 senior citizens severely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic in 3 remote barrios in Misamis Oriental province. During our site visits in these communities, we witnessed the overwhelming need for food for the elderly in the area. We aim to provide food supply for at least 3 weeks until severe restrictions in the flow of farm products are lifted.
With enhanced quarantines being implemented in the barrios and municipalities, and with severe disturbance in the flow of food and agricultural products, the senior citizens coming from very poor families are at severe disadvantaged with hunger staring daily in their faces. There is a need to mount supply of food for them in order to improve their well-being.
We will procure food from the nearby city of Cagayan de Oro and using our permits from the government as food in the localities are already scarce. We will distribute the food packs to targeted senior citizens in very difficult circumstances.
The well-being of local communities and their senior citizens is enhanced by timely delivery of supplies as community lock-downs and the difficulty in procuring food is happening. Our local workers embedded in the barrios will select and implement the delivery of food and in so doing we do not waste much-needed resources.
