Isabela governor appeals for food aid

Posted by akosistella on March 11, 2010

MANILA, Philippines—With corn and rice farms across Isabela drying up due to El Niño, Gov. Grace Padaca is appealing for aid for the hundreds of thousands of residents who are at risk of going hungry.

“We need help from the government and even from the international community. People think there's no calamity here,” Padaca said in an interview by phone Monday night.

The El Niño-induced drought has cut a wide swathe of destruction to crops in the province since last year, estimated at P3.6 billion or nearly half of the P8 billion damage across the country.

I’d like to appeal to the public to kindly send food donations to Isabela via the DWSD. Thank you.
