Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project providing support to internal refugees displaced by a host of factors such as insurgency and climate change from their own lands. This project is very important because of the dire situation happening today especially caused by climate change. Displacement of local people from their homes and from their livelihoods is more frequent and something has to be done about this. 

Our approach in trying to respond to this crisis is to reach-out to families who have settled with their relatives and promote the growing of high-valued crops where they will be able to earn good income later on in a small space of land area. One of our choice is the growing of cacao with the value of cacao beans steadily high in the market. We are starting to produce seeds for reproduction in the nursery in a 1 hectare farm and we aim to disperse seedlings a year from now.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Providing support in remote areas

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative supporting internal refugees. The influx of internal refugees is a growing phenomenon and this is caused by a variety of factors like the ocurrence of natural calamities, criminality, war and extreme poverty in the countryside. The land now especially those located in the mountains are becoming poorer and poorer and unable to provide security and welfare to families and the tendency is to move to other places and become internal refugees in their lands. This is very difficult and the family sometimes become dependent on government help which at times is also becoming less and less as local and national governments are unable to cope. This reporting period we focused our support in areas where other agencies have difficulty supporting. We were able to provide food packs and vegetable seeds to 170 families in this manner. Thanks too to other supporters who provided us with the materials and logisitics in order to do this task.

Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing assistance to local refugees affected by climate change as well as by the on-going insurgency here in Mindanao. Our island is considered a land of promise but there are so many who are displaced and are either living with their relatives or still in evacuation centers. One of the situation is the Isis-inspired Marawi insurgency that until now has produced many disenfranchised families unable to return to their homes. This reporting period and with the help of a local supporter, we are able to provide food to 200 people who are living in an evacuation center. 

Hoping for your continuing support to our initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Crop diversification with small-holder farmers
Crop diversification with small-holder farmers

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing assistance to internally displaced families. A series of unfortunate events happening in the countryside made people to abandon their homes and seek places where they can live peacefully or have something to eat. This reporting period, we promoted the practice of crop diversification among farmers who have returned to their homes and starting to grow crops over again. The idea is for them to fully utilize their small plot of land in order to grow a variety of crops so that their income streams are spread over several months as opposed to only growing one crop and in the event of failure going hungry for long stetches. We are able to conduct training to 75 farmers using this technique and provide them with seeds and planting materials. We will continue to monitor the farmers in order for us to document this best practice and expand our assistance to other beneficiaries and areas.

Again, thank you very much for your generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

provision of small livelihoods

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting those who have left their homes due to war and calamities. The villages that we are working are beset with man-made and natural calamities. For example, in areas where there are Muslims, some sectors are advocating war. On the other hand, natural calamities such as typhoons are happening more frequently causing people to be displaced from their homes. This reporting period, we provided small livelihoods to 235 families. The livelihoods are the raising of small animals such as chickens, ducks, pigs and goats. These animals are easy to grow in the backyard and they provide food and income for the family.

Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora
