2013 with hope. We continued our Youth Leaders-Advocate Camp program, its theme entitled “Lead the G.R.E.E.N. Change against Climate Change!” and worked with local youth participants to build an awareness of global warming and the devastating impact of climate change on the environment, such as stronger hurricanes and storms. We helped them to gain understanding of how they could become thoughtful stewards and
further sustainability efforts in the quest for climate justice. Together we planted thousands of mangrove tree saplings in northern Cebu.
As the year drew to a close, we watched from an ocean away as Typhoon Haiyan swept across the Philippine Islands in catastrophic proportions – affecting 14 million people and displacing 4 million.
Through your generous support, youth were able to participate in Youth Leaders-
Advocate Camp. The Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide was also able to successfully respond and coordinate emergency relief efforts in typhoon-devastated areas in the Philippines.
Because of you, we still have hope. Without your belief in our efforts, we could not take on the work ahead of us.
We ask you to please stay with us, with the Philippines.
Thank you again for everything you do.
