COVID-19 Economic Response Fund

The COVID-19 Economic Response Fund aims to prevent mass starvation of the poor in our society, and reach out to the vulnerable afflicted by this unprecedented event – like providing food and medicine to the daily wage earners and their families who lost their livelihoods, and saving the homeless in the streets with no persons to beg from.

In The Philippines, the number of infected cases and fatalities are also increasing daily.

To contain the virus, the whole country went into a lockdown as authorities suspend public transport, school and work, except for basic services, and order people to stay at home. Luzon was forced to shut down 703 factories leaving thousands of workers unemployed.

As the problem only worsens by the day, an extension of the lockdown is already being considered. But for the daily-waged informal workers which make up 38% of the Filipino workforce, each day that passes without income or food means the family goes hungry for another day. Death by starvation is a stronger reality for them.

With no access to food or relief supplies, these famished people have no choice but to succumb to inhumane acts such as eating corn fungus to fight their hunger or worse, crime.

Your contribution will help victims severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, alleviate their hunger and provide their daily needs.
