Sept 9, 2013 rebels attacked my peaceful city and have since then wrecked havoc and destruction. Several civilians and govt. troops died, more than 10,000 houses burned and 150,000 people displaced, among them 47,000 children from 0-14 years old. More ...

The latest figure from the UNICEF says that 47,000 children from 0-14 years old are now in evacuation centers spread accross the city. There has been no school for almost 3 weeks and most of them lost thier school stuff when their houses were burned by the rebels. There was a girl about 12 years old who evacuated with her family to the Grandstand, the biggest evacuation center in the city housing 70,000 people, all she saved from her burning house was her school bag, she did not even grab clothes. She was one of the few who still have her school stuff. Not many had the chance. One of the top priority needs now by the evacuees according to the Department of Social Work and Development aside form Food, shelther and clothing are school supplies. My friends and I saw the need to try to help them live normal lives again by donating 400 school kits. We are now low on funds and we need help to be able to reach all those kids affected by this conflict. We believe that sending them to school again will help them deal with the trauma that this ordeal has caused. We believe that the next generation of Zamboanguenos have a chance for a better future. Help us help our people. We need to take care of the next generation, one child at a time.

P.S. 100% of the proceeds of this campaign will go to buying the school kits for the kids. One school kit costs about $5. It contains 1 Bag, 5 notebooks, 2 pad papers, 3 pencils, 1 pencil case and 1 box of crayons. Plus a lollipop or two :)

Thank you for your kindness :)
