The massive flood brought by the recent typhoons has turned hectares of rice fields into lakes.
Because of this, farmers like Ignacio Victoria cannot help but look over the flooded fields and lament over their huge loss. It is hard for him to absorb that their main source of livelihood is now submerged in floodwaters, and they are not able to salvage any of it.
“I feel sick just by looking at our rice fields. It was our family’s only source of food and income. We tried to recover some sacks of wet grains, but they are rotting already,” Ignacio grieves.
Even before Typhoon Rolly and Typhoon Ulysses razed our country, the lives of our farmers are already challenging.
And now, like Ignacio, hundreds of farmers are wondering how they would feed their families in the coming days. They are wondering where to find hope and encouragement amid all the storms that struck their lives.
In helplessness, they found relief.
Thanks to your partnership with Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines – Ignacio’s family would not have to worry about their meals for a week.
Ignacio and his co-farmers in Lopez, Quezon received much-needed food, non-food items, and hygiene kits when the Operation Blessing team visited their community. Apart from the relief goods, the beneficiaries were also given the chance to hear the saving love of God and encouraging prayers through our church partners.
Today, Operation Blessing’s disaster response team is in Cagayan to send aid to families who are severely affected by Typhoon Ulysses. If you are looking for ways to lend a helping hand, you are in the right place! Become part of our relief efforts to the Cagayanos by partnering with us!
