Second Harvest Japan (2HJ) and Second Harvest Asia (2HA) shipped over 140 tons of food aid to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for redistribution to various feeding programs and NGOs in the Philippines. We thank our donors for their generous support, in particular Del Monte USA.
Here are some photos of DSWD’s warehouse when 2HA Chair Charles McJilton visited there.
