Calamity Assistance and Rehabilitation Endeavors


Calamity Assistance and Rehabilitation Endeavors

The Calamity Assistance and Rehabilitation Endeavors (CARE) provides immediate assistance to victims of calamities or natural disasters like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and typhoons that leave vast areas flooded. Calamities displace families, destroy livelihood, and even claim lives. In the Philippines, CARE aims to be the first responder to disaster victims, not only to provide the basic necessities (canned foods, rice, water, medicine, clothing, blankets, among others) that are most needed immediately after the devastation, but, more importantly, to provide short-term measures to support recovery and rehabilitation. These measures are done with the help of the staff of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) and in coordination with humanitarian agencies, non-governmental organizations, church-based organizations, and private individuals.

Feed the Hungry has donated a total of PhP34,402,249.27 worth of food, cash, medicines, medical supplies, and other materials up to the period ending October 15, 2011.

The CARE program has also given monetary donation to other countries devastated by natural catastrophes; the most recent were the famine and drought in East Africa and the powerful earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan. In the Philippines, monetary donation and assistance was also extended to private individuals and different medical
foundations to help save those struggling with disease.

Closer to home in the metro Washington, D.C. area, FtH Board members and officers help out in food pantries, soup kitchens, e.g., SOME (So Others May Eat), retirement and senior citizens homes e.g., Lincolnia Senior Center, and other such establishments needing volunteers.

December 17, 2012

To our dear friends and FtH supporters,

On behalf of the Feed the Hungry Executive Director, Chairperson, Board of Directors, I am attaching two documents:

1. An appeal to you to please consider the cry for help of those in New Bataan/Compostela Valley/Cagayan de Oro (again), hit by Typhoon Pablo (International name: Bopha) on December 4, 2012. Typhoon Pablo is considered the worst typhoon (more so than Typhoon Sendong) that hit the Philippines this year.

So many lives were lost. Those who survived were left without homes and all their belongings were wiped out. There is so much misery all over—here, we are blessed, safe in our own homes. But, we just cannot ignore the plight of our kababayans. Thus, we are knocking on your compassionate and kind hearts to ask you to please help them.

FtH is ready to render emergency assistance in partnership with Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) and in coordination with National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council (NDRRMC) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

2. FtH’s Typhoon Sendong Progress Report so that you know how your donations for the Typhoon Sendong victims and their families were spent—that every cent you donated through Feed the Hungry, Inc. benefitted the intended victims.


Sendong Progress Report - December 2012

Kindly take note of the picture of the just-completed two classrooms— complete with student desks, teacher’s table and chair, upgraded boys and girls comfort rooms with flushing toilets—that will benefit 100 school children every year in Indahag, Cagayan de Oro. The later classrooms that are being built through FtH are supplied with electric fans. FtH is looking into the school water supply system and is also trying to provide them with books.

As always, thank you for your kind support.
