In our last quarterly report, we shared about our Tacloban Feeding Station. Now we are happy to tell you that we have 12 more feeding stations in operation! Four of these are in Luzon and eight are in Mindanao.
Luzon. All the four feeding stations in Luzon are outreaches. Outreaches open at least once a week and serve healthy meals and at times fruits too. Just this October, we started serving milk with our meals at all of our feeding stations! A chocolate company partnered with us and provided the milk we serve. They made a campaign called Generosity Bars. The Generosity Bars are chocolate bars from which the milk was removed and given to the kids.
Every Saturday, the four feeding stations feed kids who are mostly from poor families or slum areas. The Sta. Lucia and Sitio Banaba (both in Antipolo City) feeding stations and the Cubao feeding station (in Quezon City) all feed 30 kids weekly. The Sitio Dumpsite feeding station (in Antipolo) which was closed from March to August reopened in September. It serves 100 kids. Beyond feeding children, the outreaches also engage them in fun activities like music, games, and storytelling.
Mindanao. In Mindanao, we have seven outreaches and one Project Baon. These are the outreaches in Agusan Del Sur and the number of kids they serve:
- Jireh Christian Ministries – 30 kids
- Anchor Bay Evangelistic Church – 30 kids
- Body of Christ, San Isidro – 30 kids
- P-10 Lower Lukad – 30 kids
- Brgy. San Isidro – 30 kids
- P-9 Patrocenio – 30 kids
- Brgy. Manat – 50 kids
Brgy. Manat also operates a Project Baon that serves 30 kids three times a week. This feeding program has a duration of three months and the weight of children is monitored. We hope to bring you the kids' progress in this station in our next report.
All in all, we are serving 450 kids in these 12 new feeding stations. All of these are possible through your generous donations. Thank you.
