DELIVER A LIFE-CHANGING CHRISTMAS GIFT
CHANGE LIVES, CHANGE CLIMATE CHANGE
Climate change is already impacting the lives of many.
2015 was the hottest year recorded, and temperature records in 2016 have been smashed every month since.
The poor are hit hardest by climate change. One such place is Masbate in the Philippines, this island province was once a thriving fishing community with abundant waters. In recent years, climate change has altered their fortunes drastically.
By this Christmas, we need your help to change the destiny of 450 lives to help the people of Masbate build a sustainable future.
Meet the people of Masbate
With 1 in 2 living below the poverty line, many in this region face a daily struggle with basic needs like food, water and energy. As the effects of climate change worsen, escaping poverty is becoming an unattainable dream for the 75 households and 450 people in Masbate.
Amy Almencion, 16, wants to be a teacher and to travel the world. An honor student, she aspires to complete her studies and help her family out of poverty one day.
Amy and four siblings share a weak kerosene lamp when studying at night. She hopes for a solar lamp, which provides more light and saves their expenses on kerosene gas.
Fisherman Arnel Letada, 36, struggles with earnings of S$1.50 to S$4 per day, most of which goes back to running his boat. What is left feeds a family of five.
Arnel’s hope lies in container farming, which will help provide food and income on days when there are no fish.
