Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting families displaced by the insurgency. This project remains very relevant today with insurgency perpetrated by different armed factions opposed to the government are happening in the countryside causing displacement and suffering to hapless civilians who are forced to flee and abandon their homes. This reporting period we focus our effort to assiting those who have gone back already and starting to farm with the introduction of high-valued fruit trees. Our special focus is the asexual propagation of mangoes that bear exceptionally large fruits. We aim to distribute asexually propagated seedlings to 50 farmers during this first batch of support and we will provide additional seedlings as we continue this advocacy.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project assisting families displaced by insurgency. The Philippines has one of the longest running communist insurgency in Asia and this has wrecked havoc to thousands of families. Aside from the communist problem we have also the Muslim extremist in the south and rag tag criminals and extortionists roaming the countrysides causing trouble and mayhem. This reporting period we focused our effort to the promotion of vegetable gardening as a means of improving the nutrient intake and incomes of affected households. The participating families like our approach very much because vegetable growing does not entail much effort and local materials around the house can be utilized. We were able to distribute 350 seed packects comprising ladys fingers, tomato, eggplant, spinach, cucumber and bitter gourd to 75 households during this reporting period.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing assistance to families displaced by insurgency. This project continue to be very relevant because it is taking a long time for displaced families to be resettled and they need all the support available. After the initial support by international NGO's, support severely dwindle as the problem is no longer in the news. Local organizations have the means and capability to continue support as they are on the ground all the time and some of their workers and volunteers come from the rank of affected individuals. This reporting period, we provided a community where displaced families temporarily settled with simple filtration system in order to make sure that the water they are drinking are free from harmful pathogens. We will provide continuing technical support as soon as the filter is operational.
