This project will provide food and sanitation relief and recovery support to 3,000 poor families affected by the Super Typhoon Goni/Rolly by the provision of hygiene kits and farming inputs in order to ensure that the problem of sanitation is responded to and the damaged agriculture is rehabilitated soonest.
Super Typhoon Goni/Rolly is the strongest typhoon so far this year 2020. Many of poor families are affected and the need for safe sanitation especially during this time where the Coronavirus pandemic is still affecting all communities cannot be taken for granted. Vast areas of farmlands have been destroyed and the need for farming inputs especially vegetables, corn seeds, root crops and fertilizer is urgent in order to revive food production and abet hunger and malnutrition.
We will provide hygiene kits and farming inputs especially vegetable, root crops and corn seeds and organic fertilizer to poor farming families affected by Super Typhoon Goni/Rolly in the areas in Albay and Taal where we have active local presence and volunteers when we responded to the eruption of Taal and Mayon volcanoes. In the immediate we will provide food packs to badly affected families.
Poor farming families in our project areas are badly disadvantaged with the persisting Coronavirus pandemic and now with the effects of Super Typhoon Goni. Added to these are the problems related with the eruptions of Taal and Mayon volcanoes with the danger of lahar flow. The impact of our initiative is the improvement of the lives of local farmers so that they are able to contribute fully to community life.
