In July 26, Super Typhoon Egay (internationally named as Doksuri) hit areas in Luzon. Days after, Typhoon Falcon also entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. The combined strength of the typhoons and the Southwest Monsoon brought more than a week of rains. PBSP will focus on farming families, given the impact of the typhoon on their farms and lands. NDRRMC reported that for these typhoons combined with the southwest monsoon, damage to agriculture reached 1.9 billion pesos.

According to the National Disaster Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) Situation Report, though majority of the provinces in the northern part of Luzon were severely affected, the province of Cagayan was the hardest hit where at least 38,000 families equivalent to 132,000 individuals suffered and are still suffering from the devastation. Of which, 94,000 are farmers and fisherfolks. The report likewise accounted the number of damaged houses to more than 13,000 houses.


In terms of assistance received, the report shared that the affected population in the 2 provinces have relied on the assistance of the DSWD and their Local Government Units (LGUs). Given the limited assistance that has reached these areas and the limitation in the resources of the government, it is necessary for the private sector and other organizations to extend a helping hand to support the immediate recovery of the affected communities.

Long-Term Impact

For a minimum of 50 priority farming families assisted, the project can support their immediate basic needs and help them in ensuring that they do not incur more debts as these families try to recover from the adverse effects of the typhoons to their source of living.
