Despite the difficulties, the country has the leadership, the human and material resources and most of all, the unity and team spirit to overcome this tradegy.

Meanwhile, farmers are encouraged to apply for insurance coverage under the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) as a means to cushion the impact of calamities in the future, especially among the farmer sector, Calawag added. (PIA) [top]
