The United Nations estimates some 300,000 residents of central Mindanao, Philippines have been displaced due to military operations.
As one of the few NGOs working in this violent region, Asia America Initiative's Peace Zone Schools also serve to provide shelter for thousands of displaced families. In addition, we help provide food and medicine, but there remains a severe lack of proper sanitation and clean water. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of many families by giving them the basic resources they need to survive.
