Poverty has in existed in the Philippines for over 50 years. In the Philippines, they suffer natural disasters such as typhoons year after year, causing constant struggle to farmers. Problems with food growth may also cause people to go hunger may not be able to purchase groceries. Charities can donate to support the Philippines in their crisis towards poverty. People must do everything they can to stop the poverty in the Philippines by doing tons of various different things to help the Filipinos. There are also many things that cause poverty to occur.
In the Philippines typhoon constantly hit there cause destruction to their houses and other building. This causes the Filipinos to pay for repair damages, which costs a lot of money. This is what natural disasters have to do with poverty. Sometimes the Filipinos have volcanic active that could go off and also damage their cities. Charities use their donations to help pay for the destruction. Although people do not donate to support the cause of poverty.
According to East Asia Forum “The Food crisis occurred in 2008, pulled the poor into an even more desperate situation.”(Reyes and Tabuga). Food crises make poverty grow deeper into the country. The chronically poor people in the Philippines weren’t always poor they became poor due to certain shocks or crises they became poor. Most of the poor are transient poor. Most of the people who experience a drop in their income are the people who are engaged in agricultural activities. The farmers have been struck by typhoons causing the farmers constant struggle.
As times past new organizations or charities have been created to support or stop a cause. Most of the time people join and add in donations to help the organization. Although, other people donate their money to useless non-profitable organizations. Any kind of donation could help not just money donations. People could donate unwanted clothes or material. Anything can help the Filippinos survive in the poverty. The GDP didn’t grow anymore than 4 per cent in six consecutive years. It was about to 4.6 per cent from 2003 to 2009. Something familiar had happened like this during the Ramos administration in 1994 to 1997.

Also the money could be used to buy food or clothing to keep the Philippine people more safe and secure. Maybe they make their houses more resistant to the typhoons...
