COVID 19 Response
Covid 19 affected almost every country but the effect in poor countries like the Philippines is so great especially with the government's lockdown cancelling almost all the jobs for the people.
Working with Paradise Ranch in Clark who donated bedsheets and curtains, we were able to produce more than ten thousand mask, (10,000) that were given to many communities, churches and schools. Trough this very unique program we were also able to provide home based livelihood to many sewers who were so desperately in need of jobs to support their families during the pandemic in the Philipines.
As part of our emergency response to very depressed communities we provided many food baskets to hundres of families in Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambalez and Manila. In addition, to the food baskets we also delivered 500 Easter Meals good for 2,500 people (two thousand five hundred).
During Mother's Day 300 mothers were provided with pasta, spagetti sauce and bread to prepare for the occasion.
In our effort to reach a greater number of beneficiary, while promoting self-responsibiltiy, a farming project was introduced last May called Greed Covid. The program is participated by 20 families who are given, three thousand emergency allowance monthly (P3,000), lands and seedlings to grow with the idea of sharing weekly harvest to 5 families (targeting 4,800 families for the 1 year duration of the project)!
We want to thank you for helping us make a difference to so many families. It is because of your generoisty allowing us to reach out to so many needy families. Thank you for helping us empower the poor to help others.
