Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing support to women who are abused either physically and emotionally. The restrictions and lack of physical movement caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the grinding poverty among the poor because of severe climate changes resulting to agriculture losses has exacerbated violence and abuse among women. Our initiative during this reporting period is to provide for the employment of women who are abused in a farm run as social enterprise and as source of income and employment opportunities. We do production, processing of products and marketing at the local and provincial level. Thanks too to the help of local supporters we are able to expand this pilot initiative. During this reporting period we are able to help 12 women in this manner. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances Uy

Dear Friend, 

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative supporting battered women so that they are able to become independent and stand on their own without so much support from the community. One of the biggest hurdle we are facing with this initiative is that the violence against women is repeated several times and not only once with the victim silent and unable to speak or report the violence. Aside from providing much-needed legal help, we also provide small-scale livelihood support to victims with the livelihood that they love and that they have already some practical knowledge. We were able to do this important support to 12 battered women and hoping that we are able to expand to more in the coming months. Again thank you very much for your kindness.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative rescuing and supporting battered women. The series of economic difficulties brought about by severe changes in climate and the negative impact of the coronavirus pandemic has reduced poor women to destitute situation and families with abusive husbands become more problematic because economic difficulties aggravate the situation. This reporting period we are starting to provide support as well as canvass women in our villages who are battered and in difficult circumstance. We need a baseline by which we will be able to monitor progress of our intervention. We are starting to do baseline activities in 3 pilot villages and start also providing support to an initial 7 women. Hoping for your continuing assistance to this important initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances
