Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project helping indigent children. Some of the indigent children are born from single mothers and with very little income, they are unable to support themselves. Being of no father and poor is a problem in our community and children in this condition is often teased by their playmates making them inferior and introverted. This reporting period we try to make the children and their mothers happy by giving them money that they can use themselves in order to buy toys, food and clothes. We are able to assist 35 children and their mothers this way and the feedback is that they are very happy with what they receive.
Again, thank you very much for your generosity and wishing for more help from you for this important initiative.
Very sincerely yours,

Starting to build latrines
By Cesar Sayre - Director
Proud latrine owner
Warm greetings to you all and let me thank you for your generosity in order to make this project a resounding success and for the ABCDE Foundation to be part of the GlobalGiving community.
This reporting period, I am very proud to report that we are starting to build sanitary, scientific, durable and low-cost latrines in the municipality of Sergio Osmena in Zamboanga del Norte. There are barrios here where open defecation is very high at 70% of the households having no toilets. This is really problematic and a lot of residents here are often sick with water-borne diseases. Poverty is a major problem why local residents could not afford to build latrines.
Our design is simple and we are using local materials that are readily available here.
We are able to build 22 latrines and the construction of other latrines is on-going.
