Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing aid to families displaced in the Marawi conflict. The destruction and displacement of local residents is still not being responded to adequately up to the present and much work needs to be done in order to assist the thousands of evacuees. While some have found haven with their relatives and in the evacuation centers established by the government, there are still many who are trying to make ends meet. They are destitute and badly needs help.

This reporting period, we focused on providing the evacuees who have been living with their relatives with small scale livelihoods via duck raising. Raising ducks is easy to do and they are fed with locally procured feeds from the farm. Ducks are also source of meat and eggs for the raisers. We were able to provide a total of 26 families with starter ducks comprising 20 females and 3 males which they can raise.

Hoping for more support for this project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing aid to civilians displaced during the ISIS-inspired conflict in Marawi. Most of those affected could not return home yet because of the thousands of unxploded bombs and armaments scattered in the city and the countryside. The Christians who were mostly laborers and helpers of businesses in Marawi have not returned yet since the businesses where they were employed is now mostly gone. Our effort is to assist the Christians who are affected and at this time still unable to find decent employment. Thus this reporting period, we provided support in terms of food and medicines to 35 elderly living with their relatives. Hoping for your continuing generosity and support to this project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing support to those affected by the Isis-inspired war in Marawi City. There are still many evacuees in evacuation centers in the provinces of Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte but the most problematic are those that are scattered and living with their relatives. Good if they manage to stay with those who have the means to support them but the problem is when their relatives are also poor. This reporting period and realizing that soap is badly needed in order to improve hygiene, and with the aid of an organization that we were able to link-up with, we provided 300 affected families with soap good for 3 months use. The recycled soap were cleaned by volunteers and sent to those in need in Asia and the Pacific.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing aid to displaced families affected by the peace and order problem in Marawi City. Until now, so many evacuees have not returned home as rebuilding of the homes, livelihoods and infrastructure is very slow, if moving at all. Cultural and religious problems hamper the smooth development and transition of local communities into peaceful areas. There is also the problem of patronage politics among the local elites. Despite this setbacks we continue to assist the affected families by expanding gardening activities using the backyards of evacuation centers or the homes where the evacuees have gone. In so doing we provide them with food security via a collaborative effort and partnership with local leaders, outside support groups and the communities themselves. This reporting period we are able to provide a total of 200 families with gardening inputs comprising seeds, organic fertilizer, technical assistance and grow bags.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting those affected by the ISIS-inspired siege in Marawi City. Until now those who were displaced mostly Christians working there are still in difficult situation. This reporting period, we organized a training program for youth and women on food preparation using the vegetables from their gardens. The cooked vegetables they will sell in order to add value to their farm products. Most of the participants were happy about the event and they said that this is indeed very useful for them. We encouraged them to plant some more vegetables and using the spaces in their backyard and using recycled containers and chicken droppings. This reporting period we are able to train a total of 72 participants in a 1-day training activity. Our resource persons came from the department of agriculture.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora
