Farmer Bernardo Santos laments the stunted crops in his parched rice fields in San Miguel, Bulacan, on February 26, 2024. Below-normal rainfall due to El Niño caused the rice fields to dry up, damaging the crops they had planted.

The dry spell damaged nearly 1,500 hectares of rice plantations in San Miguel, according to farmers. They are now appealing for assistance due to the heavy impact of El Niño on their livelihoods.
