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.
Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project helping families displaced by insurgency. The Philippines is one of the country where we experience one of the longest insurgency foisted by the Communist guerilla. Even if communism has already banished in most parts of the world, our problem persists largely because of the poverty in the countryside. This reporting period we used our time in order to undertake a learning tour for other practitioners doing organic agriculture. We want to learn how this is done by others so that we will be able to apply our learning with our beneficiaries. Our team travelled to Bukidnon province and was able to learn a lot including adding value to farm products by innovative labeling and brnding. Most of the products are simple but the way they are presented are indeed innovative. For example, corn is made into organic coffee, rice is made into cakes and pastries, and so on. We hope to share our learning with our beneficay groups in the coming weeks.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing assistance to those affected by insurgency. The remote areas in Mindanao has for so long having a problem with insurgency and local residents especially poor farmers are affected. When they are displaced, they lost their resource base and they become dependent to their relatives who are equally poor like themselves. This reporting period we assist them by holding feeding program among their children in order for the children to experience happiness especially in their difficult circumstance. We also join them in celebrating their birthdays which we feel they will remember for a long time. We are able to assist 230 children this way during this reporting period. hoping for more support from you.
