Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in supporting our project providing for the education and awareness about the dangers of the Coronavirus pandemic and how to prevent it by doing some basic hygiene practices. This reporting period, we did house to house campaign informing local villagers to maintain safe social distance from each other, to wash hands with soap on a regular basis and to always wear mask when in public and when going out. Wearing of masks is one effective way not to catch the virus but people sometimes forget it or do not consider it as very important. We did house to house information dissemination and was able to reach-out to 70 households in this manner. Hoping for your continuing support to our initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting those affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano. The entry of the Coronavirus pandemic has made our work very complicated because of travel restrictions and the difficulty in reaching-out to the most affected families. Thanks to on the ground volunteers, we are able to provide support albeit in a very challenging manner. This reporting period we were able to provide continuing support by the provision of vegetable seeds and organic fertilizer so that women are able to jump-start their vegetable gardening activities. We aim to provide support to 700 women and their families. We coordinated our effort with the local agriculutre office in order to leverage manpower from them and they are very supportive to our efforts.

 Again thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Transitioning to food security initiative

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity in supporting our project providing relief and recovery for very poor families affected by Typhoon Ursula. The problem of those affected takes on a double whammy as they are now facing also the difficult situation caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. The frequent lock-downs in affected villages added to the problem of the disruption of the food supply chain has caused a lot of misery as local farmers are unable to sell their produce and the purchase of farming inputs become prohibitive. This reporting period we are transitioning to long-term support via the expansion of our farming promotion and vegetable gardening activites. We are focusing on short gestating crops and animals wherein villagers can have immediate food in as little as a month's time. With this approach we were able to distribute vegetable seeds and organic fertilizer to 230 families in 3 villages. We will soon launch what we call Zero Hunger Campaign by enlisting the assistance of local governments for this initiative and then advocating this in social media so that other organizations may follow. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances
