Kiko Pangilinan on the damage to agriculture by Typhoon Lando

October 22, 2015

“We call for the government to fast-track the release of the supplemental budget requested by the National Food Authority for the benefit of the agricultural provinces heavily damaged by Typhoon Lando. The NFA will be purchasing the damaged crops to supplement the livelihood of the farmers who have tried their best to salvage their harvest (the second of this year) in the days preceding Lando’s arrival- but it was not enough to counter the damage which is now pegged at almost Php 5 billion.” – Kiko Pangilinan
