Philippines tour highlights Children’s Feeding Initiative

Convoy of Hope staff recently traveled to the Philippines with Dr. Frank Wright, President of the NRBA, to tour some of the organization’s Children’s Feeding Initiative (CFI) sites.

The group visited the capital of Manila and the second most populated island of Cebu, home to one of the most impoverished slums in Southeast Asia, where Dr. Wright helped hand out food and witnessed first-hand the successes of the CFI. More than 11,000 children are enrolled in CFI in the Philippines.

Children's Feeding / Program Updates
Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Response Team has been coordinating with in-country staff in the Philippines to identify unmet needs. Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Response Team has been coordinating with in-country staff in the Philippines to identify unmet needs.

We shipped a container of disaster relief supplies and sent funds to Manila, Philippines, in response to Typhoon Utor, which battered the nation for days. As monsoon rains continue, large parts of Manila have flooded, rendering at least 130,000 people homeless.

Thankfully, we already have a network in place in the Philippines where we feed children in poverty-stricken areas. To supplement the supplies already shipped, we are also working with a partner to ship hygiene kits to the area and are continuing to identify ways in which we can be of assistance as the water recedes.

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Response Team has been coordinating with in-country staff in the Philippines and will continue to monitor the situation and update this blog post as new information becomes available.
