New Disaster for PCF Children

Over the last few days PCF’s children and families have suffered  another disaster which has left many in dire crisis. The owner of the dump site together with the support of the Government has authorised the eviction of all the residents and charities on the dump site.

The area is home to over 15,000 people, making approximately 3,000 families homeless. There are plans to relocate 150 families from the Navotas cemetery site as well.

PCF legal team are talking with the government as no clear relocation plans have yet been established. Some families have been offered an alternative area to live which is 4 hours away from our school but families will need to build their own homes.

PCF’s social workers are doing their best to support all of our children and their families by helping rebuild their homes or find them alternative accomodation. Our health and nutrition team have started providing meals because families have gone without food for several days now as they are unable to work. The scale of this problem is way beyond our resources and we are asking for donations to help us meet their needs.

A contribution of £250 will help provide food and shelter for a family. Please contribute whatever you can so that we can help as many families as possible.

www.p-c-f.org/donate

PCF is committed to help relocate and find an alternative livelihood for as many families as we can and ensure that our students continue their studies with as little disruption as possible.

Sponsors please note that as soon we have more information we will be in touch with you directly if your childs home has or is due to be demolished.

We will post regular updates on our Facebook page see www.facebook.com/pcf.uk

Philippines Emergency Support

PCF would like to thank all our supporters again for their thoughts and prayers at this terrible time for the Philippines we have some families who have been effected by flooding following the storm and have been offering them food relief, however, the worst hit areas are much further South than our work.

We are doing our best to ascertain information from organisations on the ground about the best ways to help and we will keep you all updated.

PCF supporter Ellie Williamson collects 33KG of RINGPULLS!!!!

PCF would like to give special recognition to one of our young supporters - Ellie Williamson who managed to collect a HUGE amount of RINGPULLS totalling a massive 33kg in weight!!!!

Huge thanks to Ellie who’s hard work will help so many people!

Each ringpull amounts to about 4p in value to the work of PCF, so Ellie’s hard work has totalled around £4000 worth!

 

Great work Ellie :-)

Maybe Ellie’s collecting will inspire others to do the same….!

Emergency Relief on Tondo Dumpsite

Emergency Relief on Tondo Dumpsite

 

At 11.30pm on September 20th a ferocious fire blazed through the dumpsite for two and half hours causing devastation for over 350 families after an oil lamp was accidently thrown during a family argument.

One five year old child burnt to death trapped in her home and another five year old child is missing.  200 homes were burnt to the ground with all personal possessions lost.  PCF has opened up our community health clinic on the dumpsite as a small evacuation centre for the fire victims but many families still in deep shock have chosen to stay on the site of their burnt homes living under tarpaulin so they can secure the space where their home was.

PCF desperately needs donations to build basic shelters, purchase charcoal stoves, bed rolls and bedding, food parcels and medical supplies.  Any donation will help, no matter how small. 

 

Please make a donation HERE or by calling 01489 790219.

Thank you.

Binhi Literacy Program for PCF Kids

Binhi Literacy Program for PCF Kids

To produce more competitive and literate students, PCF adapted the Binhi Literacy Program through the funding of Lao Foundation.

Binhi Literacy Program envisions that every Filipino child in school is learning well. They are to provide English learning support to children in marginalized areas by creating learning kits inspired by proven teaching methodologies and recruiting and training community based volunteers as teachers.

The program will run for 6 months and aims to teach the children basic literacy skills that will positively impact their learning skills. Students from Grades 1 and 2 which accounts to a number of 50 has been participating in this noble endeavor since July 8.

In an interview, Anita Sarnicula Principal of PCF expressed her deepest gratitude in this Literacy Program. “The D & L provided English literacy program to grades 1 and 2 through Binhi Foundation. The advocacy of the program among children is to develop reading with comprehension and to reinforce multiple intelligence through workbooks as well as learning guides to teachers designed for the purpose. Over the years, PCF has been doing its best to improve its procedures in educating less fortunate children of Tondo and Navotas. With the help of D & L we can greatly improve. Thank you very much for allowing us to be part of BINHI English Literacy Program!”
