6k Antique residents receive aid from GMA Kapuso Foundation


About 6,000 residents from Antique received aid from GMA Kapuso Foundation as they face the effects of the El Niño.

According to “24 Oras,” Friday, a large portion of farm land in the town of Tobias Fornier has dried up.

Farmer Ronelyn Naig said that this has affected her income and she is now in deep debt.

“Masakit na lugi ang puhunan, tapos maghahanap ka ulit ng pangpuhunan sa susunod na taniman, tapos may pinapaaral ka pa na mga anak, siyempre uutang ka ulit,” she said.

Meanwhile, half of Salvacion Yasay’s crops were attacked by armyworms.

“Dati, nandiyan rin pero hindi masyado. Pero ngayon, grabe as in. ‘Yung uod, talagang 100% kakainin ‘yang dahon,” Salvacion said.

“Peste kasi, dati maraming makakain ‘yan dahil may mga damo sa paligid. Ngayon, wala nang damo kahit mga pasture areas. Ngayon, nag-transfer na kung anong crop ‘yung existing, andon sila nag-transfer. So ‘yung mais natin naapektuhan,” Municipal agriculturist Renesito Labnao said.

Under Operation Bayanihan, GMA Kapuso Foundation delivered food packs to residents, medicines and hygiene kits to the rural health unit.

“Maraming salamat sa GMA Kapuso, hindi niyo kami nakakalimutan na mga magsasaka sa Antique,” Salvacion said.
