    My name is Sun Hee Lee. I’m Korean.
    I have already known Oxfam. I had met Louisa Daubney(Trusts and Foundations Team, Fundraising Partnerships) this June in Seoul, Korea. She gave lecture on Fundraising Workshop for Beautiful Store and How Oxfam works. Her speech struck a deep impression on me.

    Now I’m staying at Malate.
    I want to visit your Foundation.
    I wonder how to administer Oxfam Manila.

    I’ll work as fundraiser in Korea.
    I had worked in culture marketing for 16 years.
    I attended the whole course of fundraising that was held under the joint auspices of The Beautiful Foundation and The Hope institute from May to July in Korea.

    And then I took a growing interest in fundraising.
    I want to collect contributions to 3th or developing country later, so I studied English at SPC in Angelles for last 2 months.

    I finished studying English last week.
    I send you this email before come back Korea.

    I watched TV about enormous calamity.
    The poor families are suffering extreme poverty.
    I think now days your foundation is busying because of big disaster.
    If you give me your time, I would very much appreciate.
    I have to leave Manila this Saturday.

    Please send me your feedback as soon as possible.

    Thank you.
    Take care.

    I’m from the Center for Agrarian Reform, Empowerment and Transformation (CARET, Inc) with programs on sustainable agriculture, enterprise development, local governance and policy advocacy. . We have been working with partner POs/communities in Pangasinan, Laguna and Nueva Ecija in drafting local development plans, community organizing, cooperative building, delivery of basic services, and land and food rights advocacies. Climate change and continuous “development” aggression against agriculture areas to accommodate urban structures have made our partner communities very vulnerable to disasters. CARET has been meaning to integrate disaster risk reduction and management in our programs to make our local and national work more holistic, responsive and relevant. We are aware of Oxfam’s active involvement in environmental protection and climate change advocacies and would like to ask the assistance of Oxfam Phils. in developing this program within CARET. We do hope our organizations would have this chance to work together.

    In solidarity,

    We are the graduating Political Science students of the University of Santo Tomas. As part of our requirement for graduation, we are conducting a thesis entitled “International Non-Governmental Organizations Funding to Non Governmental Organizations: Its Effect on Program Processes and Policy Outcomes”. Our thesis focuses on the funding allocations of Oxfam on specific NGOs in the Philippines and how these allocations affect projects of the NGO.

    We would like to ask your office address in the Philippines.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  • 19. Bona Dea Mendoza  |  January 29, 2010 at 6:12 am

    Hi Mr. Glenn,

    My name is Bona and i’m from an NGO called Asian Bridge Philippines. We are facilitating exposure programs for Korean and Asian activists. This February, we have visitors from the Chonnam University, all nursing students and is very much interested in the health care system in the Philippines as well as learning what NGOs/organizations are doing regrading health care/programs. I was wondering whether we could visit Oxfam on February 10, Wednesday to have an orientation about the organization and/or visit any community where Oxfam has health programs for the local people.

    I would appreciate your reply regarding this matter. Thanks a lot.

    In solidarity,

    Bona Dea Mendoza

      Hi Bona, Please get in touch with our partner, Medical Action Group through its executive direactor Edeliza Hernandez at

      • 21. Bona Dea Mendoza  |  February 3, 2010 at 1:13 am

        Thank you Mr. Glenn for the reference. As i was discussing with the group (the nursing students from Chonnam National University), they are interested also to visit international organizations such as Oxfam and if you have time to give them orientation on the work that you do, they would like to visit Oxfam on February 10, in the morning if possible from 10-12 nn. If you could recommend any community where Oxfam has programs, it will be more appreciated, and it can be not health-related. Our office is in Commonwealth, so communities within Metro Manila will be more convenient. Thank you very much.

        In solidarity,

        Bona Dea Mendoza

      • 22. Oxfam Pilipinas  |  February 5, 2010 at 6:07 am

        Hi Bona! I am afraid that I cannot accomodate your group this time. We are in the middle of a huge activity. If you like, we can talk of arranging an orientation in the future. Let me know if this is okay with you. Cheers, Glenn

  • 23. Celso  |  February 2, 2010 at 8:27 am

    Hi Sir Glenn,

    Oxfam are going to give a relief goods in our place at Purok 7 Lupang Arenda Santa Ana Taytay Rizal this coming February 10. My concern is some people will not get a ticket for the relief goods. They said (the local official in Arenda)Oxfam have a second batch?Is it true? and they are using the master list(the list of Oxfam the first time they give a relief goods, but why some people are not in the list? Is it unfair? I heard a rumors that they(the local official of arenda) are prioritizing their members. They said that the Oxfam are the one who are making the list. Is this true? I am very disappointed to the local official. Many people are not going to get the relief goods because the officials are not fair. Hope to hear from you Sir. Hope you understand my english.

    Many Thanks,

    • 24. Oxfam Pilipinas  |  February 2, 2010 at 9:20 am

      Dear Celso, Sorry to hear that. Let me refer this to our response manager and get back to you right away. Yours, Glenn

      • 25. Celso  |  February 2, 2010 at 10:55 pm

        Thank you very much Sir Glenn! Hope to hear from you soon.

      • 26. Oxfam Pilipinas  |  February 10, 2010 at 9:15 am

        Dear Celso,

        Thank you very much for your comment. It is important for Oxfam to hear from the community what we are doing well and what we can further improve on.

        When we respond to an emergency we work to complement the efforts of government institutions. This is because the government is primarily responsible for delivering relief services in any disaster.

        Oxfam believes that the humanitarian imperative should always come first. This means that we try to ensure that those who need humanitarian aid the most, those who are most vulnerable, are given the relief and aid that they need.

        Unfortunately governments are not always able to reach those most in need. That is where agencies like Oxfam come in. We try and ensure that government policies do not forget those people who need aid the most. We talk with government and share with them our principles of putting our goal of saving lives at the forefront of our work and to set aside political or social divisions.
        For us it is important to support the strengthening of government institutions because in the end, Oxfam will leave and it is these institutions which should continue to provide for people’s basic needs.

        In the Ketsana response, we use DSWD masterlists and evacuation center lists as basis for our own list of beneficiaries. To the best that we can, we validate these lists to make sure that people who are most in need are given aid, and that there is no duplication.

        In the first few weeks of our response, it was difficult for us to have full, complete and accurate validation. Our objective at that time was to distribute to the largest number of people, in the soonest possible time.

        We received text message feedbacks about areas we were not able to reach and our teams investigated these. Where possible we have responded.In these text messages, we have also been asked to review the masterlists we use because of reports of duplication of names, reports of some families on the masterlists who do not actually live in the target areas, and reports of some families receiving more than their allotted amount.

        Our field teams in Rizal and Laguna have been revalidating the masterlists through community meetings and meetings with the Barangay and the DSWD, to ensure that there is no duplication in the beneficiary lists and that the next round of beneficiaries fit within our criteria. Our criteria includes those who stayed in Evacuation centers and in flooded areas, and we try and target the most vulnerable households composed of households headed by single parents, people with disabilities, and senior citizens.

        As a consequence of this revalidation at the community level, some names would necessarily be taken out. In reviewing the Lupang Arenda lists, for example, we made community visits and found the issues related to the list are: duplication of names and inclusion of names that do not belong to same purok and baranggay. Based on the evaluation of our field team, the decision taken for Lupang Arenda is to clean the list.

        We hope you understand that we have limited resources and are not able to reach everyone. Our response will, however, reach 25,000 households or some 125,000 people out of more than 4 million affected by the successive storms. While we cannot provide for everyone, we will continue to raise awareness and issues with the Philippine government and with United Nations agencies.

        Thank you again for your feedback.

      • 27. Celso  |  February 11, 2010 at 3:35 am

        I have to Thank Oxfam with their staffs and to our Chairman at Lupang Arenda for making a good decisions. You have to be credited for serving people, but who’s gonna give give you? I’m sure it is God.

        Most of the people in Arenda we’re very proud of you! You never hear but I’m sure you can feel that everyone is happy with every single items you brought to our community.

        I’m very Sorry for my complaint, hope you understand.

        Many Thanks,

  • 32. Duoi  |  March 15, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Hello Oxfam! I learned this web page through your advert @ ABS-CBN few minutes ago. The stories and the feedbacks here remind me of my days with OGB. I had the change to work with OGB in different projects (PH and FSL) both in the emergency and post emergency contexts. OGB was able to develop me in many ways especially in humanitarian work.

    I am very thankful for the chance of working with OGB. My OGB experiences have helped me achieved some heights in my career as a community and humanitarian worker.

    I am now connected with INGO here in Mindanao. Duoi
