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.

May we please hear from you? Please allow us to be your “Messenger of Mercy.”

As always, thank you for your kind support.
