Hi, I'm Emil and I would appeal to your kind heart and generosity to help me purchase a 9.370 hectare lot in Barangay Salaysay , Marilog district of Davao City in order to provide a permanent home to several families of indigenous people occupying the property as informal settlers. The funds raised would go to purchasing the property at 4.4 million with the balance would go to paying the necessary taxes, permits, surveying costs and other incidental expenses. I intend to donate 8 hectares of the property to the cooperative that will be composed of members from the families presently living in the property with 1 hectare to be subdivided among the different families while the 7 hectares are to be leased out to an agribusiness company for a period of five years at 10 thousand pesos/hectare per year for payable to the cooperative.The agricultural venture I hope would provide a means of livelihood for the residents. The remaining 1.370 hectares are to to be donated to a Catholic religious organization for the future site of a church, clinic, recreational and housing facilities that will administer to the spiritual, medical and recreational needs of the inhabitants. I know this plan is quite ambitious and a very challenging task to accomplish but with your financial help, moral support, prayers and with God's grace we can achieve what others may deem as impossible. These marginalized people have long been victims of abuse and exploitation due to their lack of education and trusting nature. Please help me provide a home for them. It is ironic that they used to own vast lands but now living as informal settlers. I know they have no means to repay your generosity but doing good to our fellowmen is its own reward. May God bless you and your family and may He reward you a thousand fold!
