Philippines: Mushroom Cultivation Helps Communities In Bohol Rise After The Quake

WFP’s Food-For-Work programme implemented in partnership with the Bureau of Fisheries and Agriculture and the Philippine Coconut Authority in the province of Bohol has been providing earthquake-affected community members with the opportunity to rebuild their lives through new and sustainable livelihoods. Carmelita Anuba, a mother and farmer, recalls the events of the earthquake and those that followed. She explains how WFP helped her and her family get back on their feet.

In 2006, following a request of the Government of the Philippines, WFP returned to the country to complement the government’s efforts to achieve a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Mindanao by addressing the food security needs of vulnerable people in conflict-affected areas.
