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.
