Give2Asia is partnering with trusted nonprofit organizations to support frontline health workers and institutions responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
Give2Asia’s disaster response program funds both immediate needs and long-term recovery. Currently, our funding priorities in the Philippines include:
• Emergency medical supplies
• Peripheral support for frontline health workers, including meals, transport, and temporary shelter
• Livelihood support for vulnerable groups
Our local NGO partners in the Philippines include:
Caritas Manila, through its Caritas Damayan Program, works through local parishes to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Project Damayan needs funds for food relief packs and hygiene kits. Caritas is also looking at expanding support to include livelihood assistance for beneficiaries with selling experience. With the capital assistance, beneficiaries are given the freedom to propose his/her desired livelihood. When the proposal is feasible and can be helpful to the family of the beneficiary, they will be provided a capital assistance worth five thousand pesos (5,000) for each family.
Philippine Business for Social Progress
PBSP's COVID-19 efforts are focused in 3 areas:
• Food pack distribution: Php 750/$15 a pack, with rice, vegetables, dressed chicken/fish, monggo, eggs, sourced from partner farmer cooperatives
• Reusable masks sponsorship via Mask4AllPH: a pack of 10 face masks (P300/$6) for urban poor families. These masks are made by community sewers from Quezon City and Cavite.
• Learning continuity: P25K/school package ($500) consisting of 100 reams of bond paper (or ink when needed) plus the year-long data load for 2 teachers for selected schools.
Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation
PDRF helps families that were economically displaced by the pandemic through distribution of groceries/grocery vouchers. For this, PDRF engages with other non profits such as Caritas Manila and ABS CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.
Save the Children (Philippines)
Save the Children provides specialized support to different areas in the Philippines depending on the priorities identified by the communities. These are determined through needs assessment via consultation and online surveys. Areas of support include hygiene kits, installation of handwashing facilities, meals for frontliners, medical supplies, and personal protective equipment or PPEs. Save the Children also provides information, education, and communication materials on good hygiene, health, education, child protection, parenting tips, and at-home-activities to help families cope with the crisis.
Teach for the Philippines
Teach for the Philippines raises funds for Learning Community Microgrants for partner schools. Microgrants typically funds school-based remediation programs, capacity building programs for teachers, and bridging programs for disadvantaged students. Grants also support mobile data subsidies, purchase of Wifi modems and additional printer ink cartridges.
