Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project feeding starving children. We are happy to report that we develop a multi-pronged strategy of direct provision of food aid especially to children who are really very poor and living in remote villages as well as training their parents especially the mothers on backyard vegetable gardening and using local materials available around the farm. For example, they can make their own organic fertilizer using animal manure, grasses and kitchen waste. They can also use plastic wrappers, broad leaves from bananas as plastic mulch in order to discourage grasses from growing. This is very effective and sustainable in the long run as seeds from mature vegetables they can use again for the next season planting. We provided the seeds as well as distributed reading materials containing simple garden tips. During this reporting period we are able to assist a total of 73 families in 2 adjacent villages here in Misamis Oriental province. We hope to replicate this model in other villages here and we think that this is one sure way to ensure food is always available for our poor beneficiaries.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation enabling us to feed starving children here in our project areas. This reporting period, we decided to focus our assistance to children living in remote mountains of Misamis Oriental province specifically in the municipalities of Naawan and Manticao. Few months back the area was affected by severe dry season and this time it is too much rain that prevented farmers from growing good crop as soil in the mountainsides erode living the area unfit for growing crops. Our feeding strategy is to let families grow vegetables in their backyards and then teaching them to cook nutritious meals from the vegetables. Feeding then is not only limited to children but also to the whole member of the family as well. We are happy to note that we got support also from local donors and volunteers helping us out with this important initiative. We were able to reach-out and feed a total of 35 children and their families this reporting period.
