Continuing support for Typhoon Sendong survivors

We are continuing our support for Typhoon Sendong survivors by building more portable ecosan toilets and starting a vegetable gardening and tree planting initiative. The portable ecosan toilets are built in scattered communities with no sanitation system while the vegetable gardening initiative is designed to provide the survivors with continuous food supply while they are beginning to start their agricultural and food production activities. The tree planting is for upland areas in both cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan and designed to prevent flash flooding.

We have added 15 more portable ecosan toilets as of last report and started vegetable gardening with 300 families. We have raised also 4,500 seedlings of different fruit and timber trees in our nursery and this will be ready for planting during the rainy months starting June.
