Challenge

The devastation caused by Super-typhoon Mangkhut (local name: Ompong) is so widespread and terrible with so many people affected. Affected most are farmers who depend on their crops destroyed by the typhoon and surviving for the next cropping season will be difficult for them.

Solution

The project will launch backyard gardening and the provision of vegetable seeds, organic fertilizer, tools and training to poor farming families so that they are able to quickly recover from the devastation caused by the typhoon. Vegetable gardening will provide them food in the very short term while the excess can be sold or shared to neighbors.

Long-Term Impact

Quick bridging with supply of food coming from own local resources is the best approach after the devastation caused by the typhoon. Relying on food aid is not sustainable and not sure but gardening is easy and provides immediate results.
