Providing fruits

Food for children

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your kindness and generosity supporting our work with vulnerable children here. Food is always scarce for poor farming families with dwindling harvest with poor soil and increasingly unpredictable climate. We are finding ways to be resourceful in providing food as our resources is also limited and during this reporting period, we try to access surplus food from local farms as well as food from sources outside our project areas. We are happy and thankful that we were able to link-up with an organization based in Manila who provided us with 100 boxes of meal packs. We added to these fruits available in the farm and distribute these food to 70 children and their families. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Providing added value to farm products

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our project providing farm-based livelihood to girls. Farming because of a host of factors such as erratic weather events, low farm-gate prices of harvested crops and high cost of inputs is no longer attractive for both men and women alike. There is a great need to revitalize agriculture and we can do this by tapping the potential of young people, who still have the energy and passion to implement change in their communities. This reporting period, we promoted the adding of value of farm products by processing these products into highly marketable condiments, tea and food additives. For example, we assisted a group of 5 young women process their chili production into highly-marketable chili paste and then assisting them in marketing. We have several products that can be processed and these are turmeric into powder, moringa into tea and drinks and ginger into tea. 

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Providing post-natal care

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project assisting women have access to pre and post-natal care. This project is very important especially in remote barrios where access to health services is poor and some of the families resort to local witch doctors for help. Morbidity and mortality in this situation is high. Going to the town center for medical help is also difficult due to lack of financial capacity. This reporting period we provided assistance to 5 women so that they have access to pre and post-natal care and they are very happy about it. We also provided education by visiting them in their homes and explain the importance of good health and good nutrition and to start gardening activities so they have access to food.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle
