Red Cross insurance saves Iloilo farmers from ruin


Farmers from Iloilo were rescued from possible bankruptcy after Typhoon Ruby damaged their crops because they were able to collect from the crop insurance provided by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and its partner society, the British Red Cross. PRC Chairman Richard Gordon has explained that after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) wrought destruction in 2013, the PRC and the British Red Cross provided a P10,000 crop insurance policy to marginalized farmers in Iloilo to enable them to fully recover from Yolanda and to help them mitigate future disasters. “We are committed to help the families affected by Yolanda in their efforts to get back to their lives and regain their dignity after so much devastation,” he said in a statement.
