Emergency COVID-19 Relief
Helping those who need it most
The Philippines has been dealing with an economic and educational emergency from COVID-19 for over 15 months, with vulnerable groups continuing to being hit the hardest. All public schools have been closed since March 14, 2020, placing over 20 million children into an enhanced education emergency. The economic impact of COVID-19 has forced millions out of informal work and living in food insecurity. FundLife has been working on the ground to reach the most vulnerable young people and in particular, adolescent girls.
In addition to working in the most vulnerable communities across Cebu and Tacloban, FundLife is directly supporting several on-the-ground organisations that are delivering emergency food packs to those who are going hungry. One food pack costs USD 15 and keeps a family in food security for 10 days. In addition, FundLife is keeping children safe, in particular, adolescent girls who face an increased risk during the COVID-19 lockdowns and suspension of regular school. We are providing hygiene packs and education services to adolescent girls who have been out of physical schooling for over 1 year through ‘safe-at-home’ packs
