Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos urged the government to distribute Living Income for Farmers in Emergency (LIFE) situations.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said LIFE is a form of immediate intervention for farmers who lost crops during natural calamities.
Marcos also said LIFE will also ensure there will be cheap food supply for the country.
“The Constitutionally-vested right to a living wage should translate into LIFE for our farmers – the right to Living Income for Farmers in Emergency situations,” she said.
“Simply put, in times of calamities or disasters and other emergency situations, farmers are always at a disadvantage. They have no income because their crops were destroyed. Agarang tulong ang kailangan nila, Marcos added.
