The future of Milutun, Mindanao
In March, we started building school, dormitory for teachers, and bathroom in Milutun, a Muslim village. We had much difficulty such as a delay of the project due to quarantine. The leader of the community, Malinco, has been working hard to solve all the problems. We expect a bright future of the village thanks to Malinco, a dedicated leader.
Sponsor coal briquette

We volunteers hoped the senior, living alone separated from their family, stay warm in the winter.
Help the female heads of Russian Korean households
The female heads of Russian Korean households have difficulty in feeding the family including kids and parents when they are underemployed due to the COVID-19. JTS volunteers have helped them.
