Taal Volcano Eruption Food Security Initiative

by Asset-Based Community Development with Equity Foundation
Taal Volcano Eruption Food Security Initiative

Summary

We will provide immediate food packs to 4,000 local residents who evacuated and opted to stay with relatives and friends as they are the most vulnerable and under-served compared to those in government-supported evacuation centers. Aside from the food packs, we will provide them with vegetable gardening inputs so that they are able to start small-scale container gardening and generate food on their own and spend fruitful time while waiting for normalcy.

Challenge

The eruption of Taal volcano has displaced thousands of residents and they have evacuated to government-sponsored evacuation centers or stayed with relatives and friends away from the danger zone. Food, water and sanitation, medical and shelter support are badly needed and with the gravity and widespread reach of the disaster, all assistance is indeed badly needed. This situation will persist for several days or months as the situation now remains fluid and unpredictable.

Solution

We will focus our assistance to providing food packs to very poor families staying with their relatives and friends which we surmise will also be poor and with very little resources like themselves. Then we will provide support so that they are able to do vegetable gardening activities using available spaces around their evacuation areas. We will accompany this with training on square-foot gardening, container gardening and organic fertilizer production using kitchen waste.

Long-Term Impact

Poor, vulnerable evacuees affected by the eruption of Taal volcano are often forgotten in the relief and aid distribution as they are shy and have little resources to reach-out. We will seek them and provide support so that no one is not served and the well-being of communities provided for.
