What NVC is doing for the Mayon evacuees

As of January 23, 2018, NVC has sent 20,000 Mingo Meals to Legaspi City, Albay, where it is distributed by ground partners.

 

Mingo has been distributed at the following evacuation centers:

  1. Brgy. Maninila, Guinobatan
  2. Muladbucad Grande Elemtary School
  3. West Central School
  4. Bical Elementary School evacuation Center, Lidong
  5. Salvacion Elementary School, San Isidro

How is Mingo useful?

Mingo was used extensively to feed displaced people during crises like the Marawi seige in 2017 and Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. The little girl in the photo was displaced from her family home in Marawi and received Mingo sent by donors.

During these incidents, it not only filled hungry stomachs but also fortified the bodies of children against infectious diseases, with its nutrition packed ingredients of mongo, malunggay, and rice. Children who were fed Mingo at evacuation centers contracted less diseases.
