Thanks so much for providing hot meals for evacuees like Josephine.

Josephine is 46 years old, and she lives with her two young daughters in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila, in the Philippines.

Josephine’s house is dangerously close to a river. The monsoon rains cause the river to swell, and Josephine’s house floods several times each year. Even when the water recedes a thick layer of disease carrying silt is left behind and takes days to clean.

During floods Josephine and her daughters have to spend days sleeping on the floor of an evacuation centre. This is a tough experience already, and Josephine and her daughters often have suffer hunger as well.

But now, because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide hot food for Josephine and her daughters during evacuations.

Hot meals will be available when the next flood comes and forces Josephine and her family to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Josephine, but your generosity means that she and her daughters won’t go hungry. Thanks so much!

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Josephine, her daughters, and families like theirs right here on GlobalGiving. Should you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email We’d love to hear from you!
