On December 16, Typhoon Odette made landfall in the Visayas and Mindanao Islands bringing torrential rains, violent winds, floods and storm surges that rendered many people homeless, injured or dead. An estimated 16 million people in six of the Philippines' 17 regions are affected, with about 2.4 million of the most vulnerable in need of assistance. In Negros Oriental, which we have called home for many years, towns merely 36 kilometers north of where we live in Dumaguete City were hit the hardest. Many have suffered great losses including their houses, properties, livestock, and even family members. As of December 25th, the death toll in Negros Oriental alone was 75, and counting.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and other set backs, government and humanitarian organizations' aid has been scarce and disproportionate. Numerous areas remain without electricity, food, water, shelter, medicine, and other basic necessities. This has spurred on civilian groups and individuals to take the initiative and give assistance to those in desperate need. On December 24th, thanks to the generous contribution of our immediate families and friends, we were able to provide a small community in Cabanlutan, Bais, whose land and crops were decimated by the typhoon, with some food, drinking water, clothes and vitamins in time for a little relief on Christmas Eve.
However, there are still so many areas that have received very little or no help at all, and we are working on stretching the donations to provide what's needed the most. To help ease the acute shortage of clean and potable water, we have purchased a 660 liter water container and hired a truck and driver to deliver drinking water to the remote areas in Bindoy and Ayungon, With enough funds, we are hoping to purchase another 660 liter container and hire another truck to cover more areas and do deliveries six days a week for the next month, possibly two, until public water supply services resume.
Our goal is to raise 203,000 pesos in order to make this water delivery run possible for the next two months. To break it down, a 660 liter tank is 11,000 pesos (about $216 USD). 2,000 pesos (or $40 USD) pays for one run of one truck with 660 liters of water including the driver and gas for the vehicle. We are aiming to send two trucks per day which will provide 10 liters of potable water per household, helping about 132 families per day.
There is no donation too big or too small. Any help you can give is appreciated by so many, more than you'll ever know. We personally guarantee that every cent goes towards our water drive and any additional funds we receive will be distributed in aid supplies, building materials, and other relief efforts as needed. We will send constant updates on how your contribution is distributed and if you have any questions or wish to speak to us personally, feel free to contact us via our information below.
We can't do this without you and thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts.
With love & hugs/ Anne, Ollie, Alma, Daniel

Keeping the water flowingUpdate posted by Anne Munoz at 11:04 am
It's hard to believe the end of the first month of 2022 is drawing near, but what a successful month it's been for our water relief efforts! We have been able to deliver well over 50,000 liters of potable water to about 25 different typhoon affected areas in northern Negros. . . . .
One Month and A Day...Update posted by Anne Munoz at 09:06 am
...after Super Typhoon Odette (internationally known as Rai) left a trail of destruction in the Philippines, and sadly numerous areas on our island of Negros Oriental remain struggling for clean drinking water and basic supplies for survival. It is with grateful and humble hearts that we proudly announce we are. . . . .
It Takes A VillageUpdate posted by Anne Munoz at 03:50 pm
As my amazing sister Maja reminded me, it takes a village. Not just to raise a child, as the original proverbial phrase goes, but to raise up those who have been struck and stripped down by the tragedy that was Typhoon Odette. As the donations, both online and offline, continue. . . . .
More Work To Be DoneUpdate posted by Anne Munoz at 10:16 am
Dr. Dawnn Bituin, a friend who is a doctor at the Municipal Health Office in Mabinay, has confirmed cases of typhoid fever in areas with unsanitary and contaminated water. We will be focusing our efforts in those particular areas starting next week. Yesterday, both water trucks went out again to. . . . .
Water is LifeUpdate posted by Anne Munoz at 03:07 pm
Water is literally LIFE. A basic human necessity inaccessible to remote areas where Typhoon Odette/Rai wreaked the most havoc. With merely 38% of our funding goal met, we have been able to set up two delivery trucks carrying a total of 3,600 liters of potable water distributed to approximately 700. . . . .
New Year, More H2O!Update posted by Anne Munoz at 09:07 am
As we bid 2021 good bye and look forward to better days in 2022, we are touched by the overwhelming support we have received from so many of our friends and families. Yesterday the water truck went to Sitio Cabuyao, Manjuyod. Today, we were able to purchase TWO 1500 liter. . . . .
Day TwoUpdate posted by Anne Munoz at 12:45 pm
The water truck went up to Alingalinan, Manjuyod, today. This is the first time the locals have received any direct aid. Before today, they have had to travel down the hill to get to the highway in hopes that somebody would give them clean water. Thank you to our donors
