COVID-19 Economic Response Fund
Frontline employees and healthcare workers in Camillian Socio-Health Institutions (CSIs), medical missions in shelters for homeless, and other partner medical centres.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. In the Philippines, as of time of writing, 3,764 people have been infected with 177 fatalities. As a result, the government has declared an Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) for the whole island of Luzon, as the cases are concentrated in the area.
Many of the homeless are now housed in shelter and evacuation areas to protect them from the virus (mostly in church buildings and schools). While they are staying in these shelters, some of them are falling sick. A team of Camillian Fathers and doctors have been formed to cater to their medical and health needs through a medical mission moving from one shelter to another.
The Camillians are also involved in various health ministries, which include heading the operations of 5 Camillian Socio-Health Institutions (CSIs). This puts their employees and frontline healthcare workers at risk because most of them interact with the sick. While the necessary preventive measures are being taken to avoid infection, the Camillian Fathers cannot afford to be complacent because the chances of an employee catching the virus are still high.
