Thanks so much for providing hot meals for Rizza during floods.  

Rizza is 17 years old. She lives with her mom and two sisters in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila, in the Philippines.

Rizza’s house is partly made from bricks but it's poorly constructed, and dangerously close to a river. Every year there are floods, and Rizza’s house is often inundated. During floods Rizza and her family have to spend days sleeping on the floor of an evacuation centre. This is a traumatic experience already and it’s made worse as Rizza’s family often have to go hungry as well.

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

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

We’ve been there to help during past floods and here’s what Rizza had to say about our previous support:

“Thanks to IDV donors we received help after the [last] flood, so we did not experience hunger and poverty.  For this we feel grateful and blessed.”

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Rizza, her family, 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!

One last time, thanks so much for ensuring that Rizza and her family can enjoy hot meals during floods.
