Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative helping the elderly during this coronavirus pandemic. Great to inform you that finally vaccination is gaining ground with more people willing to get vaccinated compared to during the early days of the pandemic. Restrictions are also being slowly lifted and people are more free to go around and do their business. During this reporting period we grow vegetables in a 1-hectare farm and use the produce in feeding a total of 50 elderly in 3 villages. We think that this system is sustainable as neighbors provide labor and support. We need your continuing assistance especially in terms of the provision of vegetable seeds. Thank you so much.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative nutrition support for elderly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This time shows the easing of restrictions caused by the pandemic and the urge of people to be vaccinated. This is so unlike before wherein local villagers shun the vaccine drive of the government. We think that the series of restrictions to be imposed on the un vaccinated had made people to be vaccinated. This reporting period we focus our attention to providing food supply to 72 elderly living in 3 of our beneficiary villages. The food that we provided comprise Filipino well-loved food as well as rice and canned goods. We aim to continue this activity especially now that we are coming up with the holiday seasons. Thank you so much and wishing you will continue to support us.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our initiative supporting the elderly with nutrition via local food supply and vegetable gardening. This initiative is important with the coronavirus pandemic still threatening communities and with little defense against their immune system, the elderly is at a very great risk. Food is important also in order to assuage hunger and malnutrition and during this reporting period we provide direct food packs to 230 elderly in 3 villages. Your help and generosity during this time is indeed very timely and hoping you will continue to support us. In the next months aside from food we will initiative the provision of small farm tools so that those elderly who can still work around their homes can do so and start their own vegetable gardens. Again thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your kindness and generosity providing nutrition support for the elderly during this Coronavirus pandemic. The elderly are really at a great risk because of pre-existing illnesses and there is a need to take good care of them. During this project period we delivered food for them by means of live chickens and ducks which they and their families can cook to their liking. We procure the chickens and ducks locally thereby providing also livelihood to local farmers whose supply chain have been disrupted because of the pandemic. Situation in our villages is getting desperate each day and what help we can do is really very much appreciated. Hoping for your continuing generosity. This time we are able to assist a total of 135 elderly and their families with this type of food aid. 

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative helping the elderly. This project is very crucial especially during this time when the Coronavirus pandemic has no cure yet. We are praying that we will have a ray of sunshine in the future. We are implementing starting last month a backyard vegetable gardening initiative focusing on the elderly and their families. It is indeed disheartening to note that the elderly is one of the most affected group in this pandemic. We are able to assist with vegetable seedlings a total of 720 elderly and counting as we continue with the distribution. Hoping for your continuing help.

Very sincerely yours, 

Cesario Sayre
