Dear All Friends,

Greetings from Leyte. Harvesting hope, this is our badge and slogan here in Leyte as we continue to provide safe sanitation activities for the people affected by Typhoon Haiyan. A group of writers from the UCLA's The Daily Bruin came here few weeks back and featured our work.

Last Saturday two of GlobalGiving senior officers, Britt Lake and Alison Carlman came here to visit our project sites. From Tacloban City, we toured them to Palo, Leyte then after, they motored to Ormoc City and visited one more temporary shelter in Concepcion. Then they went to a mountain barangay, Mahayahay where we are implementing safe sanitation activities. They saw for themselves the Filipino, robust, low-cost and safe toilets that we have constructed in area. Later that day, they went to our main office cum livelihood demonstration farm where our in-house adviser, Elmer Sayre briefed them about the entire coverage and reach of our initiatives in Leyte and Samar. Elmer also demonstrated to them the procedure in pre-fabricating and installing our toilets.

All in all, our work here is gaining ground, as we look forward to the first year anniversary of the mega-typhoon come November 8.

Hoping for your continuing support as we expand our initiatives.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Harvesting Hope

Dear All Friends,

Greetings from Leyte. Harvesting hope, this is our badge and slogan here in Leyte as we continue providing food security support to Typhoon Haiyan survivors via vegetable gardening and root crop production. We have succeeded in growing our own vegetable seeds from the commercial seeds we bought and thus we are becoming slowly independent from commercial seed companies. Few weeks back, our work is featured in the The Daily Bruin and the link is,

Last Saturday two of GlobalGiving senior officers, Britt Lake and Alison Carlman came here to visit our project sites. From Tacloban City, we toured them to the beneficiaries' gardens in a temporary shelter in Palo, Leyte then after, they motored to Ormoc City and visited one more temporary shelter in Concepcion where they assisted in distributing garden materials. Then they went to a mountain barangay, Mahayahay where we are implementing safe sanitation activities after which they went to meet our officers and staff in Albuera, Leyte and also see our various livelihood showcases there.

All in all, our work here is gaining ground, as we look forward to the first year anniversary of the mega-typhoon come November 8.

Hoping for your continuing support as we expand our initiatives.

Production of organic fertilizer for coconuts

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Leyte. This time we are producing organic fertilizer in order to fertilize the new coconut seedlings that we are distributing to farmers. This is much needed in order for the young coconut trees to grow very well. We have already raised 1,000 seedlings ready for distribution to farmers and we plan to produce 2,000 bags of organic fertilizer to accompany the seedlings. We will be distributing the seedlings in Albuera Municipality in Leyte. When Typhoon Haiyan destroyed almost all the coconut trees, the need to replant in order for the farmers to survive in the long-term is indeed very urgent.

Hoping  for your continuing support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora
