Opportunity to support the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) - 22 September, 2015
The Irisan project in North Luzon began with a feeding program the Uniting Church in SA has been supporting in collaboration with the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) and Uniting World. It has since developed into a wider health education project – addressing malnutrition, mother’s classes on health, hygiene issues and managing household waste.
The UCCP have requested we support the extension of this capacity building project by raising funds over the next 18 months. Our fundraising will pay the costs of running the seminars aimed at training key community people, increasing literacy and will make a direct contribution to transforming the lives of hundreds of vulnerable people in the Philippines.
Alongside these projects of health and education, the community leaders are recovering indigenous culture, particularly through a children’s and youth program. The adults are handing on the stories of their culture to their children and strengthening traditional values.
