Last week, I was able to to participate in a life changing program that showed him the ways this program and many others shape the livelihood of people of the island of Negrence and the people of Bacolod. I participated in a 3 day program where I was able to meet children who have been living on the NVC mingle meal program, fishermen whose lives were changed, old women that found a way to provide for their family’s, former tricycle renters, and malnutrition children. I said to the head of the program ” I was able to experience what it was like to give happiness to those who have small smiles”
The NVC also helps other programs like Peter Project, St. John’s project, and stop hunger foundation. There will be more information so please check out their website: https://www.nvcfoundation-ph.org/
People can also support the NVC by not just participating in physical work to help others but they can also donates supplies and funds to help support children and their families. You can sponsor a child for a regular MINGO MEAL pack. MINGO MEALS are malunggay, rice and mungo beans that are powdered and grinned into small packets which are meant to give more nutritionus value to a regular meal as it is not a full meal on its own. I go to see the production of Mingo meals and many other products that also help support those in need like the dried whole meals for a family from the STOP HUNGER FOUNDATION. More details here: https://www.nvcfoundation-ph.org/projects/mingo-meals/
You can donate money for polyester boats that are given to fishermen so that they can help support their family better. A lot fishermen are just renting boats in order to actually fish in the sea. Their average income is only around 50 pesos a day and when they can’t earn money, they eat their own catch for food. The NVC help by teaching those fishing communities how to fish properly, supplying them boats, and help monitoring their lifestyle. I was able to once again see the impact of the NVC’s support on those fishermen of the island of Negros. I saw the polyester and wooden boats donated by the NVC (they no longer donate wooden boats due to environmental reasons) being used by fishermen catching fish.

So I am here ask if you can also help with this program and help them change the lives of other. Some times all it takes is a little kindness to make a family smile.
