Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your kindness and generosity in supporting our project promoting vegetable gardening among those affected by the crisis in Marawi. At this time rebuilding the city takes a very long time as unexploded bombs still litter the nooks and crannies of the city center. We think that it will take a long time for the area to be declared safe again and for the residents to build their houses and start a new life. At present, we continue to promote vegetable gardening wherever the displaced residents are located because gardening is easy, fun and they are able to produce nutritious food for their table. This reporting period we introduce the growing of wild mushrooms for food because they can be grown easily and does not require a lot of care and space. We are in the process of collecting spawns and then multiplying them in local nutrient culture. Once we have multiplied the fungus, we will distribute them to the beneficiaries so that they are able to grow them in their farms.

Hoping for your continuing generosity.

Very sincerely yours,
