20 Jan 2014: A friendly gathering to present the new project of the Singapore delegation

On Monday, the 20th of January 2014, our delegation welcomed Guillaume Mariau, in charge of sponsoring and partnership for Enfants du Mékong Paris.
After a friendly gathering around the buffet dinner, Guillaume presented the last and future projects supported by the Singapore sponsors and team.

First one is the center of Sisophon, in Cambodia, which represents today 41 boarding house and 1226 children. The funds raised in 2013 by the Singapore delegation contributed to cover the nutrition and healthcare related costs of  learning and residential centres in Sisophon

The new project for 2014 will support the educational center for disabled children in Manila. This structure is a huge innovation in Philippines, and will help many children and youth. That’s why Enfants du Mékong decided to help this structure.

As for the support brought to the Philippines after the Haiyan typhoon, Guillaume reminded us
that Enfants du Mékong is not an emergency response NGO, but assists with the reconstruction. 

There are three phases to this reconstruction effort: audit and coordination, implementation of immediate aid, and long-term action plan to help families.

Thanks to our sponsors and friends who joined us for this enriching talk!

Philippines: what the world is forgetting

On November 8, 2013, one of the most violent typhoons ever known slammed into the Philippine coast. Winds of over 300 km/hr and waves rising three meters tall swept away frail homes within a matter of hours. Today, nearly 10 million residents have been affected by this natural disaster, including 4 million children.

Dominating news headlines, the Philippines are the focus of a major mobilization on the part of emergency NGOs who are currently providing shelter, food, water, and first aid to all devastated areas (Leyte, Samar, Cebu, Bantayan, Negros, etc.). But the Philippines humanitarian emergency is only just beginning. In a few weeks, Typhoon Haiyan will become old news. Yet each and every affected Filipino will have to fight for the survival of himself and his family. Tomorrow, the real reconstruction struggles will emerge. It will no longer be a matter of delivering food and water, but rather of equipping each and every family with the means to rebuild their homes and support themselves through decent work. Also facing this uphill battle are thousands of orphaned children, left isolated and destitute. The life, integrity, and innocence of these children are now in jeopardy.
For 18 years, Children of the Mekong has been committed to providing hands-on support for the people of the Philippines. A development NGO specializing in educational sponsorships, Children of the Mekong supports nearly 60,000 children in Southeast Asia and sponsors 3,500 in the Philippines. In the field, Children of the Mekong teams are devoting their knowledge of the devastated areas and their network of contacts in order to support and guide emergency NGOs, while also assessing the damage and organizing the next phase of reconstruction.
1404921_629638597075217_179410467_oMost houses in areas affected by the typhoon are now destroyed. But the hard-working people of the Philippines have already begun to rebuild their houses with materials recovered from the rubble, says Antoine Besson, who is on a fact-finding mission this week on the islands of Cebu and Bantayan on behalf of Children of the Mekong.
Right now, donations can make a major difference in the Philippines and save lives. By sponsoring a child, you have the ability to provide shelter for that child and fund their education so that this natural disaster does not condemn its youngest victims to a life of misery and a lack of education.
To provide even greater assistance, Children of the Mekong has set up an emergency fund to provide support for the reconstruction of homes and to give people the resources for a small domestic economy (such as fishing boats, livestock, and seeds) so that every family can soon return to a semblance of dignity and financial independence.
“The children we help today 
will save their country tomorrow!”
This is the conviction that drives Children of the Mekong. And this is why the NGO is calling upon the generosity of its supporters to sponsor a new generation of Philippine children over time and to fund the reconstruction effort through this emergency fund.
