Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our initiative promoting the health and nutrition of disadvantaged youth. The Coronavirus pandemic has made our work more difficult and challenging with supply food chain broken and the lack of nutritious food supply. However this is the best way that we can highlight and promote the utilization of local fruits and vegetables as rich sources of nutrition as compared to the much hyped commercial food which sometimes has less nutritional value. The main issue is that massive advertisements from multinational companies has relegated local foods to low priority and low class by the populace. We will advocate and promote this effort via social media and by word-by-mouth as our volunteers engage the youth in local communities. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity in helping us support our project providing for good health and nutrition to children and youth. With the Coronavirus pandemic affecting small, marginal farmers, there is a need to provide them with alternative livelihoods. In this situation, and together with local supporters, we are mobilizing micro-loans to the very poor so that they will be able to continue caring for their families and provide good food. The government is providing support in the barrios but the support is not enough and there is a need for local citizens to pitch and provide help even if small amounts only. We are able to provide 12 families with livelihood loans in this manner.

Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity supporting our project providing for the improvement of health and nutrition of very poor and vulnerable children. We are very happy to inform you that this project is one of the best project that we have and during this time we are in the process of conducting planning and programming so that our activities for the next year will be more proactive and relevant for the beneficiaries. Aside from the regular food support, vegetable gardening and fund support that we are providing we are thinking of providing the children with much more. For example, when they go to school they lack the basic ameneties and we are thinking of providing them with this type of support. We are also linking-up with local and international partners that are able to assist us expand our work to other areas.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing nutritious food to children and youth. We aim to provide children and youth with good chances in life when they are adults and food and nutrition is a sure way to do this. Our approach especially in remote areas is to teach them to grow different type of crops on a single piece of land and in so doing their food supply is also varied and there is no need to depend on one or 2 kind of food. When one crop fail, they still have other crops to get their sources of food and nutrition. This reporting period, we are able to teach 20 families how this can be done.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing nutrition to children and youth. This reporting period we focus our help to individual families who are in dire situation. For example, we supported a young mother and her child with nutritious food for 3 months in order for them to grow healthy and the child to grow free from sickness and diseases. The first year of a child is critical and the need for proper nutrition is imperative. We trained also the young father to grow food around the area so that they have access year round to organically grown vegetables. We are able to provide support to 7 families during this period using this strategy.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian
