Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support and generosity to our project assisting evacuees so they live comfortable lives. The last few months we experienced severe dry weather and vegetable gardening activities by affected families has largely stopped. Evacuees prioritized their need for water to household use as well as to health and hygiene requirement for the family. This time around they are able to start their gardening activities with the onset of the rainy season. We hope that the rain will not be too much though because it will also destroy the crops. We trained community residents to practice mixed planting of vegetables so that they will have veriety and so that they have several income streams from short term and longer term crops. We were able to assist 110 families during this period using this approach.

Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,
