Focusing on the Children

Dear Friends,

First, I would like to thank all of our very generous supporters who have helped our project in 2014 and I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a great 2015.

Last December, The Philippines was again hit by another powerful typhoon, luckily it was not as strong as Haiyan and people were far better prepared. As we begin 2015, our attention remains on the response to the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. The rehabilitation efforts continue to assist in the recovery of the survivors and some projects are focusing on Children. Children are among those worst affected by a disaster, and among the most vulnerable after.

KI volunteers, Al-minah Solaiman and Rohaidah Dimapinggun are working with Eastern Visayas Network of NGO’s and PO’s, Inc. (EVNet) based in Tacloban City. They are assisting with a project on Child-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction Management which is being supported by United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The Project will provide a proper knowledge and increase the awareness of the Haiyan survivors in responding to calamities.
Rohaidah and Al-mina will be the focus persons at EVNet who will ensure the implementation of the project. The volunteers will be involved in conducting seminars, training & workshops related to the project.

 The Eastern Visayas Network of NGOs and POs (EVNet) is composed of thirty (30) organizations operating in the islands of Leyte, Samar and Biliran. EVNet members have been actively engaged in the response to Typhoon Haiyan in Samar and Leyte.

The Dynamic Dozen go forth

Launch of new volunteers on August 25th
Launch of new volunteers on August 25th

With your invaluable help through your donations, we have been able to produce our 9th Batch of volunteers to work for peace and development in the Southern Philippines. The 12 volunteers, consisting of 8 Women and 4 Men, were selected from over 130 applicants in June. They then underwent 5 weeks of intensive training during July and early August. The 9th Batch, known as ‘IKHLAS,’ took up their placements in Mindanao and Visayas on September 1st, 2014. Volunteer placements are based in Marawi City, Iligan City, Cebu City and Tacloban City. Volunteers in Mindanao are working on projects mainly related to the current Peace Process. Those placed in Visayas are mainly working on projects related to the rehabilitation after Typhoon Haiyan.
For some of our new volunteers, it is their first time to travel away from Mindanao , first time to go on a ship and for most of them, the first time to live and work amongst Christians. The learning curve is steep and the challenges great but we are confident that they have the right aptitude and commitment. We will bring you their stories in the coming year.

Almost one year on and so much still to do

Helping children to recover in Northern Cebu
Helping children to recover in Northern Cebu

It is now nearly a year since Typhoon Haiyan caused massive destruction through the central Philippines. Rebuilding infrastructure and people's lives is now the priority.
With the generous support of Global Giving, we have placed 6 volunteers with organizations working with Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Visayas region. 2 volunteers are working in Tacloban, Leyte Province while the remaining 4 are working in Cebu. After one month's intensive training in Mindanao, the volunteers travelled to the Visayas and began their placements in early September.

Normila Sacar and Maharoden Limug are working at Gualandi Volunteer Service Programme based in Cebu. In the first few weeks of their work in Northern Cebu, they;

• Facilitated a supplemental feeding program and distribution of school supplies for 108 children in Hagnaya
• Assisted in the rehabilitation of classrooms at Central School in San Remigio
• Conducted two weeks of Pyscho-Social activities for children in Barangay Punta

The other volunteers placed are Rohaida Dimapinggun and Al-minah Solaiman, are assigned in Eastern Visayas Network of NGOs (EVNet) in Tacloban; and Rasden Azis and Norhamidah Musa, assigned to Rescue Assistance Peacekeeping Intelligence Details (RAPID) Inc. based in Cebu City.

By supporting this project, not only are helping with the very long road of providing rehabilitation and recovery to survivors, you are helping Filipinos to help one another and raise the Filipino spirit known as "Bayanihan' and help strengthen the bond between communities from different areas and faiths.
