The El Niño phenomenon felt in Western Visayas, Philippines from April to May 2024 has caused billions-worth agricultural losses, with the province of Iloilo incurring the highest losses (pna.gov.ph).

Aware of such a plight of farmers and residents in the town of Janiuay, Iloilo City, Philippines, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) through the Ecclesiastical District of Iloilo South thus held a Lingap sa Mamamayan (Care for Humanity) event at Janiuay Municipal Astrodome, Iloilo City on May 10, 2024.

“This is a great help. Thank you very much,” added Garganera upon receiving the aid.

“I’m so grateful for the Church Administration reached out to us here,” said Rhyan Gallenero. — With reports from Ariane Vitales and Ace Juliene Capizonda of INC News Section
