My Dear Friends,
Warm greetings and may I thank you once again for your generosity. This time, we continue to distribute food packs consisting of Filipino foods such as dried fish, legumes, sweet potato and cassava. We continue to select too survivors whom food aid could not or have difficulty reaching. The biggest problem starting end of this month is the announcement of international aid and the Philippine government that food aid will be discontinued because the survivors could alread "take care of themselves." This is indeed a wrong notion since until this time agriculture is still starting and except for our vegetable gardening initiative, support to agriculture is still not visible as the focus of aid by international agencies and the government is in infrastructure re-building.
This time also, we are expanding our work to cover the province of Samar and we found out that devastation there is also great although news is concentrated in Tacloban City and neighboring areas.
Hoping for your continuing support.
Very sincerely yours,
