Growing in Manila!

Volunteers and at risk community members
Volunteers and at risk community members

We're delighted to report that our work in Manila is changing lives every day. Our work is ranging from stockpiling food for when the floods come to helping community members learn to use technology to stay in touch with one another during floods and track storms. And, of course, we're still working on erosion control and flood defences.

We'll be sending you a full update within a few days - including an exciting upcoming matching opportunity! For the time being, here are a few of our favorite photos of the work you've made possible so far!

Stay tuned for our fantastic matching opportunity next week, and thanks so much for your support!
