Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project feeding 300 severely stunted children. This reporting period, we provided selected families whose children badly need help with ducklings so that they can raise these and use as meat a few months from now. The ducklings will be fed with kitchen left-overs and they can also forage for insects around the backyard. This is a new strategy so that the families will not be entirely dependent on food delivered to them but also raise their own. Aside from the ducklings we also provided them with vegetable seeds that they can grow in their backyards. We were able to assist 15 families in this manner.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours, 

Cesario

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project providing food for severely stunted children. The project activities are going well despite the lack of support because we believe that we are providing much-needed assistance to children who are barely surviving. This reporting period, we focus our attention to providing the families with moringa seedlings which is touted as super-food and will have the potential of improving the health and nutrition of young children and their families at the same time growing the tree/vegetable is easy for the families to do. They can raise moringa in their backyards and do this in their spare time. This reporting period we are able to distribute 2,000 seedlings to 450 families.

Hoping for your continuing support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario

Dear Friend,

Greetings of Peace and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting children in need with proper nutrition. In most of our visits to the homes of our beneficiaries, we observe that food that they have usually consist of corn grits, rice or root crops and a few dash of salt or salted fish. With constant diet like this, we surmise that the health especially of children is severely affected and malnourishment is always persistent. When a child lacks food and is malnourished, it will also affect the brain and chances in doing well in school is severely hampered. The chance of being able to read, write and do simple calculations will be less and less resulting to very poor abilities. During this reporting period, we visited a total of 320 families in their homes in order to conduct proper education and to provide food and toys especially mind games to the children.

Hoping for your continuing support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project feeding severely malnourished children. This project is indeed very important because of the imperative to provide food and nutrition to children so that they grow healthy and their physical and mental capacities are improved. Without this, they will grow-up as stunted adults both physically and mentally. This reporting period, our team visited 3 villages in Albuera, Leyte in order to talk with leaders and the members of the community to plan out and develop a strategy how this could be done. Improving health and nutrition can be done in several aspects like directly providing food or starting a livelihood but our aim is to learn and hear from parents what best could be done. In this aspect our approach will be long-term and sustainable. In total we were able to discuss and talk with 75 members of the community as well as see the situation of the villages first hand. There is really a need to ground the program to the needs of the local population in order for the program to succeed.

Hoping for your continuing support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario
