SITUATION UPDATE: September 2022 

By the end of August 2022, the Philippines recorded as many as 889 daily new cases, which were dominantly from Omicron BA.5 subvariant. However, health experts predict that cases may increase to the thousands daily by the end of September.  This situation might be prevented depending on how the vaccination program goes. As the vaccination campaign is still running, the vaccination rate remains low compared to the target populations. Timely vaccine roll-out continues to be dilemma for the Government,  coupled with some populations  are unwilling to be vaccinated. The Country continues its awareness-raising effort to ensure communities follow strict health protocols by using a face mask in daily activities. 

The Philippines Government realizes that the vaccination program should continue, and the Official has put on a plan to conduct vaccination week on September 2022, where citizens are encouraged to have the next dose of the Covid-19 vaccine; the program will also be held at schools. Furthermore, in relation to the vaccine, the Government is also preparing to purchase a new batch of Covid-19 vaccine to reduce Omicron BA.5 subvariant outbreak. Early this year, the Philippines Government also started to disburse “One Covid-19 Allowance (OCA)” for healthcare workers (HCWs) and non-healthcare workers involved in the Covid-19 response as compensation for their effort. 

After a two school years, onsite classes in schools have reopened in staggered schedules in August 2022. The Department of Education intends to have full face to face classes implemented in all schools by November 2022.  

Current Needs 

Give2Asia’s disaster response program funds both immediate needs and long-term recovery. Currently, our funding priorities in the Philippines include: 

  • Vaccination and vaccine booster programs 
  • Support online education activities at schools 
  • Awareness raising on Covid-19 mitigation and prevention 

FEATURED PARTNERS (partial list)

Caritas Manila 

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.
