#REACHMindanao Project Analyzed Market Capacity and Demand Trends in Lanao del Sur

Providing healthy food that’s enough for the entire family is a usual concern for those struggling from unemployment. Additional threats like emergency situations and an ongoing health crisis make it even more difficult to combat food insecurity.
This is a common ordeal for many of the communities we are working with and one of the ways we address this is through our cash-for-food programs. For this intervention, our #REACHMindanao project went around the local markets in Lanao del Sur to analyze market capacity and demand trends in relation to availability and accessibility of goods. This assessment will give us a better understanding on the needs and capacities of both consumers and local micro businesses.
Through the market assessment, we will be able to identify how the #COVID19 pandemic affected market operations, price changes, and understand any changes on the traffic and volume of consumers in comparison to pre-pandemic times.
From the information gathered, the goal is to strengthen our strategies and processes as we prepare to roll out new set of food security & livelihood (FSL) activities in the next months.
The ‘Response to the Unmet Humanitarian Needs of the Most Vulnerable Populations in Mindanao Affected by Conflict, Disasters, and the COVID-19 Pandemic’ (REACH 2) Project is funded by EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid – ECHO and is implemented by ACCORD Incorporated, Action Against Hunger Philippines, CARE Philippines, Community Organizers Multiversity – CO Multiversity, IDEALS, Inc., Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), United Youth of the Philippines-Women and Oxfam Pilipinas.

In celebration of #NutritionMonth, Help Us Provide Life-Saving Aid To Families At-Risk

Do you believe that hunger is predictable?
If you answered yes, you’re correct! Hunger is indeed predictable, preventable, and treatable.
Unfortunately, until now 33% of Filipino children under the age of five are suffering from chronic malnutrition.
So in celebration of #NutritionMonth, make a donation (any amount helps!) and help us provide life-saving aid to families at-risk.

We Know The Fight Against Hunger Can Sometimes Be Overwhelming

Hey there! We know the fight against hunger can sometimes be overwhelming. But every step you take to end hunger makes a difference!
Whether big or small, your support is seen through the eyes of families we’ve reached and how they’ll no longer have to worry about their next meal, or walk miles and miles just to get clean water.
That’s why we’ll never give up – and you shouldn’t either.

Many Filipinos To This Day Continue To Live In Evacuation Camps or Makeshift Homes

Many Filipinos to this day continue to live in evacuation camps or makeshift homes. These are the people are often forced to leave their homes due to conflict or disasters who until now have not been able to start over. Most have limited job opportunities and struggle to provide for their families.

For over 20 years, we have been working all over the country, supporting as many vulnerable families as we can.

Fighting Severe Hunger Is Not As Easy As Simply Providing Food

#ThrowbackThursday to 2019 When We Sat Down and Talked With One of our Beneficiaries During our #MaguindanaoConflict Response

#ThrowbackThursday to 2019 when we sat down and talked with one of our beneficiaries during our #MaguindanaoConflict Response.

“We were all panicking and we didn’t know what to do at the time that airstrikes started,” recalled Kautin Bano. “We left around 6 in the morning and evacuated to the nearest health center. When we got there, we had no choice but to wait and observe.”

Kautin Bano, his wife and children, had to leave their home in Barangay Pandi, Datu Salibo on March 11, 2019, Maguindanao due to the airstrikes that occurred in Barangay Inaladan, Shariff Saydona.

This was not the first time that Kautin and his family were forced to leave their home. Since the 1980s, they had to evacuate several times due to conflicts in the area. With funding from USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance, 600 families received emergency aid such as non-food items (NFI), hygiene kits and hygiene promotion sessions through Action Against Hunger Philippines‘ emergency response.

We Are Constantly Scaling Up Our Efforts to Prevent Hunger, But We Need Your Help Now More Than Ever

How do we fight hunger and malnutrition?

At Action Against Hunger, we educate and support mothers about the importance of breastfeeding for the first six months, and work to improve care and feeding practices. We also train local health care workers and partners to screen and treat undernutrition, and we provide technical expertise and support to strengthen local health systems. These are just some of the components of our nutrition programs.

We are constantly scaling up our efforts to prevent hunger, but we need your help now more than ever.
