Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project feed starving children. We are happy to inform you that despite the problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic as well as by changing climatic conditions making farming a challenge as crop yields becomes small and unable to feed families, we are able to continue implementing the project with your support and that of countless others. This reporting period we are able to implement a local training program designed to increase the livelihood and incomes of the participants. We target mothers of children because they are instruments in taking care of their children. We provide them life-skills like the implementation of small livelihoods such as vegetable gardening and the raising of small animals like goats and chickens. We are able to train a total of 135 mothers and provide them with small livelihood packets during this reporting period. We hope for your continuing support for this important initiative. Thank you very much.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project feeding starving children. This reporting period we are happy to inform you that we are able to deliver a total of 1,200 food packs for 1,200 poor families. Most of the families were affected by the recent typhoon that hit Mindanao in February. With the coronavirus pandemic and the sluggish economy, poor families have difficulty in surviving and the food packs is a welcome support to them. Your support plus many others make this happen and we are very thankful for this. We aim to continue this type of initiative to very poor communities in our region and hoping for your continuing assistance. Thank you very much. Stay safe and healthy always.
Warm greetings for the New Year 2021 and hope that the New Year brings happiness and good health to all of us despite the difficulties we are experiencing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Even the remotest areas are affected now and with no viable cure in sight, more difficulties may yet to come. Hoping that we are able to surmount this. This reporting period, we visited our target remote villages and provided food supply to very poor children and their families. We are doing this in the spirit also of the Christmas season and in order to bring happiness to those that are really in need. We are able to provide food to 340 children and their families in this manner. We shall continue this approach for this year with the aim to bring nutrition and health to children in need. Hoping for your continuing support.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your continuing support to our initiative feeding starving children. During our intermittent discussions and some meetings with local leaders we found out that children prefer commercial snack foods even if these are not readily available and expensive. We think that advertisements as well as the idea that anything not available in the locality is good contributed to this situation and during this reporting period we aim to change that behavior by the promotion of local food that are more tasty and nutritious than the introduced ones. For example the meat and water of young coconuts hold a lot of promise. Root crops too as staple and as snack food holds a lot of protential too. We will start with 2-3 common crops for promotion and hopefully children will learn to adopt this. We will provide report about this apprach in our next reporting to you. Wish us luck. Thank you so much.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generosity in assisting us feed starving children. Our problem is compounded with the Coronavirus pandemic affecting our communities. There is no clear solution yet except for social distancing measures and good hygiene in order not to catch the virus. Although children are less vulnerable it is the effect to their parents that will make their lives miserable. This reporting period we continue to devise means so that food is secured even to the poorest communities by facilitating the planting and growing of highly-nutritious crops for food as well as for income by small-scale, marginal farmers. We are very successful in this aspect and enlisting the assistance of the youth in the food production activities. This reporting period we are able to support the growing of home-gardens to 75 households. Hoping for your continuing support.
