In December, MR dispatched a youth volunteers team to Quezon province as part of our youth engagement programme that was organized in partnership with the Singapore Soka Association, Singapore International Foundation and Mendaki. The youths arrived in Iloilo City to implement a livelihood programme and distribute medicines to 1,200 villagers in Quezon province affected by an earlier typhoon. The team also built homes and a chicken farm to provide income and employment for the poverty-stricken community of Iloilo City.
