Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative assisting those affected by Typhoon Tembin. We did a visit to the affected areas and found out that even until now, there are residents who have difficulty repairing their houses. Some of the houses have walls that are destroyed and rain or wind affects those living inside. In this regard, and with the help of local supporters and partners we are able to provide heavy-duty tarps that families can use in a temporary manner while they are looking for more durable materials. We also advised them to use palm fronds as additional repair materials with the palms growing in large numbers in their farms.

Hoping for your continuing generosity and support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project helping those affected by Typhoon Tembin recover from the calamity. The recovery effort will take long especially for those who have very little assets. They will have a hard time recovering and the problem is that after the typhoon comes another tropical depression called Falcon that wrecked havoc to affected families. With gardening as an easy and sure solution to hunger and malnutrition, we focused our effort to continue promoting this strategy. Vegetables are easy to grow and some crops mature early. This reporting period, we are able to support 75 families in their gardening activities with seeds and small garden tools. Thanks also to a local donor who provided us with much-needed assistance.

Hoing for your continuing donation.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project helping those affected by Typhoon Tembin. Hardest hit are villages located in Tubod municipality and until now recovery is very slow. The disaster have been bypassed by other most recent disasters and these are no longer in the news. We are local and we can stay for a very long time in order to assist those affected families.

This reporting period, we continue providing support in their vegetable gardening activities finding-out that this is one of the most effective way to help them. Aside from improving their health and nutrition, the surplus they can sell for additional profit. We are able to distribute 200 seed packets in this way during this quarter.

Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora

Taking care of breeder goats
Taking care of breeder goats

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing food, sanitation and hygiene materials and training to those affected by Typhoon Tembin. The situation in the area at present is starting to be back to normal with community residents rebuilding their lives and their livelihoods. The main crop in the area is banana and the hardest hit barrio was a trading post for bananas in the past. Now, the trading of bananas and other crops is slowly back and allied business like small eateries are sprouting again. This reporting period, we started a goat-based livelihood by breeding goats with high genetic purity in order to produce offspring that we will disperse later on. Our choice of goat breed is Anglo Nubian and Saanen for their meat and milk production quality. Our breeding area is located in Naawan municipality and at present we have 53  breeder goats.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation enabling us to assist those affected by Typhoon Tembin. The typhoon has wrought so much damage to agriculture and to properties and so many people have not yet fully recovered. Our focus during this reporting period is to provide the survivors with vegetable seeds that they are able to grow in their own backyard gardens in order for them to have continuous supply of nutritious vegetables. We purchased the vegetables by the kilogram in order to get lowest price and then repack the seeds into small packets just enough to seed small gardens in their backyards. This approach has proven to be effective in this area as well as in other areas affected by the disaster and we will continue to do this. We are able to provide 124 vegetable growers with enough vegetable seeds comprising ladys fingers, tomato, eggplant, radish, moringa and pepper enough for them to grow the next 3 months.

Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora
