How to stop being poor and help people in crisis
Pangasinans are struggling to make ends meet after the devastation of the 2008 earthquake, and they are desperate to make a difference in the lives of others.
Many have resorted to begging and street vending, but others have turned to food banks and food trucks.
The homeless have also become an issue, with some families living on the streets, in cars or on the street as they search for money.
The problem is compounded by the high cost of living in Pangasina, where the average annual salary is around US$5,000, according to a 2012 survey by the local government.
Many Pangastans have been unable to find work, meaning they have resorted in part to begging, and that has led to a significant number of cases of malnutrition.
“They don’t have the ability to pay the bills, so they’re begging to pay them, because they don’t want to starve,” said Lili Nyan, who has been homeless since the 2008 quake.
When I asked Lili why she’s been homeless, she said she didn’t have any money.
Lili has been living on a street in Pungan, near the capital, Bukidnon, for the past two years.
She was forced to flee her home because she couldn’t pay her rent and could not afford food.
I was a little bit scared of her, because I had nowhere to go.
And I thought that she might come back, but she’s still here.
She doesn’t have a house to stay at, she doesn’t know how to feed her kids, she has no job, and she has a small dog, she told CNN.
As Lili’s family struggles to feed herself and her two children, she says she is also struggling to keep herself from becoming a burden to her family.
Lili said she was a single mother of two, but when the earthquake hit, she found herself living with two other children.
The family was forced from their home because the family was in a shelter, but Lili said that when they tried to get the shelter to reopen, it was closed, leaving the two children without a home.
Lilia said she had been living in a tent for months, and when the government offered her shelter, she took it.
She said she would go back to the shelter, and the next day, she would return.
But the government’s offer was never enough, and Lili decided to stay in the shelter until she found another place to live.
“My kids are starving, they don´t eat and they don`t drink water, so it´s hard to get food, because no one is paying for food, so you can’t do anything,” Lili told CNN affiliate PNN.LILI’S LIFELESS LIFE Lilili has no savings, and says she does not have a job.
She is also in debt, which is $15,000.
She is still living on money she borrowed from relatives, but the amount is now much higher, Lili added.
Lilian said she has been forced to beg for food because she cannot afford to feed the kids.
If I’m not going to eat, I’m going to beg,” she said.
In a statement, the Bukidnian government said that it is committed to providing shelter and supports for all Pangasians, and has allocated US$10 million for the crisis.
The government said it is also providing food and shelter to those in need.
Pangasinas government is also working to help those in crisis.
It announced a $1 million fund in the first six months of the year for those in dire need.
The state is also supporting the construction of a new health clinic and the purchase of medical equipment, the statement said.
