We will provide food comprising rice, noodles, meat, fish, milk, eggs, vegetables among others to 600 very poor families affected by disasters, climate change and the Coronavirus pandemic with the food supply to last until 2 months in order for the families to experience the contentment and happiness of having adequate supply of food in their homes.
Very poor families especially those engaged in small-scale farming and fishing are chronically hungry due to various factors comprising natural disasters like typhoons, changes in climate resulting to massive crop losses and unavailability of food due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The need for adequate food supply is indeed urgent and we will respond by providing them with their needs.
Direct food aid is very much needed for very poor farming and fishing communities affected by a series of calamities besetting them. Aside from direct food aid we will provide them with livelihood inputs such as fishing gears or farming supplies so that they are able to continue on with their means of living no matter the situation.
We need to break the cycle of poverty, hopelessness and misery by the direct provision of food support. In so doing we are enabling vulnerable families to rise-up and have the capacity to improve their situation.
