Warm greetings and thank you very much for your kind support to our project helping old people here. This reporting period we are selecting for our support old people living in remote barrios. They are the ones whom support is difficult to come by and helpers coming from government and the private sector are unable to reach out to them. We provide them with local food such as rice, mongo, vegetables and dried fish. The rice and vegetables comes from our farm while dried fish and other food stuff we buy from the market. Next reporting time we aim to provide them with much-needed multi-vitamins and basic medicine for fever and cough.
Again thank you very much and hoping for your continuing support.
Very sincerely yours,

High-valued crops in food security interventions
By Cesario V. Sayre - Project Leader
Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing sanitation and food security to poor, marginal farmers in remote villages here. Last reporting period, we were able to provide 30 low-cost durable latrines to beneficiaries belonging to the Subanen tribe. Thanks also to local supporters here who provided us with the needed materials and logistics in our work. We included this time in our initiative the promotion of high-valued crops such as cacao to increase the income base of farmers. The value of cacao in the local market is on the rise with demand very high for chocolates and other related products. We were able to partner with 5 farmers to act as initial model for this activity. Aside from supporting them with seedlings, we will also provide technical assistance especially in field management of the newly planted seedlings.
Again, thank you very much for your support.
Very sincerely yours,

Providing for personal needs
By Cesar Sayre - Project Leader
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project to provide life-saving support for poor farmers. We focus our support to assisting farmers meeting an accident while doing farm activities. Farming activities aside from back-breaking is also full of situation for accidents to happen. For example, one farmer here while going to the farm suffered burns from the weeds that he is burning and he needs antibiotics, pain reliever and bandages for his wound. We are able to provide this. We will continue to do so in this manner aside from continually providing life-saving support like the provision of farm tools, seeds, organic fertilizer and deworming medicine for his animals.
