Challenge

The El Nino is causing severe drought in some parts of the Philippines and small farmers depending on corn and rice as staple is now facing starvation and malnutrition as there is no harvest that they can get. There is a need for emergency food aid so that farmers will be able to survive until they are able to grow their crops again.

Solution

The project will provide emergency food aid comprising rice, noodles, salt, dried fish, mongo, powdered milk and sugar to those severely affected by drought. We will focus our effort to the Indigenous Peoples comprising the Higaonon and Subanen communities living in the mountains of Zamboanga del Norte and Misamis Oriental. The Subanen and Higaonon solely depend on their land for their food and a missed cropping means hunger and death for them.

Long-Term Impact

The El Nino is not a regular occurrence but comes every 7-9 years or so. If our beneficiaries will be able to survive this El Nino occurrence and be successful in raising their crops again, then hunger and malnutrition will be abetted.
