Problems that have been observed:

  • No access to potable water
  • Few rest rooms which are in bad state
  • No system of collecting waste
  • Lack of education in sanitary awareness

All these facts explain the frequent sickness of the population and they endanger the well being of the people. These facts prove as well the spreading of mosquitos and illnesses they can cause.

Goals of the projects:

  • Give access to potable water for the survival and the development of the people of Sitio Anido
  • Promote a clean and healthy environment for living, while respecting their privacy and educate them to have good habits
  • Reduce the spread of diceases and mosquitos
  • Ensure the health and safety of the beneficiaries
  • Inform the people about the healthy and sanitary procedures

Different projects:

  • To build a water tank that will provide potable water to the population
  • To build distribution areas of water with filters
  • To build 40 rest rooms with dual-chamber septic tanks
  • To build an area for collection, recycling, and destruction of waste

Typhoons, the worse enemy of the Philippines

2 typhoons crossed the Philippines the 3rd week of December. The typhoon Melor (local name Nona) was category 3; it caused flooding, landslides and storm surges. Hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated. A 1.2 million people were left without power; many houses and other buildings were destroyed. Around forty people were killed.

The Philippines is hit by at least 20 typhoons a year, many of them are deadly. Most of the strongest typhoons occurred towards the end of the year. With the global warming, the number is increasing and its power as well.

We have a Typhoon Program, and the goals are:

  • Create an emergency fund and act fast after a typhoon hits

  • To provide the basic needs (water, food, blankets, etc.)

  • To help the population to build new houses and

  • To help the affected people to restart their economic activities.

The people of the Philippines are in need of any help you can provide, “help us to help them”.
