Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project food delivery for the elderly during this Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of slowing down the pandemic continue to infect a lot of people and our situation is becoming dire day by day. The need for the elderly to stay home is imperative and we focus our assistance during this reporting period to providing them with food comprising rice, canned goods, dried fish, noodles and other home essentials. We are selecting elderly whose family could barely provide for them as well as those with ailments. We also focus our assistance to those who are affected by the recent calamities for example the typhoon that ravaged part of our island last February. Our long-term approach in this situation given that the pandemic may be long term is to provide small livelihoods to the families where the elderly are living. This maybe their relatives or friends. A total of 2,300 elderly were supported with food packs during this period. Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing food for the elderly during this time of the Coronavirus pandemic. The situation is dire in remote villages and we decided to focus our effort to the provision of long-term support instead of the food packs which is consumed within the day or week of delivery. With technical support from the municipal agriculture office in a municipality here, we launched a vegetable gardening support for the elderly. We were able to provide support to 230 elderly during this reporting period by providing them with vegetable seedlings and organic fertilizer. We decided on providing seedlings instead of seeds because the seeds are very tiny and it is diffcult for the elderly to raise them. This project is becoming a model in the community and hoping to expand this in other villages with your additional support. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity in providing us the means to reach-out and support the elderly during this challenging times. The Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in lock-downs and community quarantines depriving people to move around and look for work. The economy is at a very dangerous low-turn and we really don't know if a solution by means of a vaccine is on sight. Our health system is already close to being overwhelmed and thank you very much for your kindness and generosity, we are able to launch our initiative to provide food delivery for the elderly. Food is scarce here and the elderly is most often at a disadvantage and our support is very much needed. This reporting period, thanks so much for your generosity, we are able to provide packed meals to 300 elderly in 3 villages. Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre
