Donate na, mga sis.

We know how you might be feeling. Recent developments of the COVID-19 crisis might have you feeling helpless, especially since most of us can’t leave our homes to show our support. Nevertheless, there are countless ways you can help our healthcare workers, our daily wage earners, and the families who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus. And it’s as simple as cashing in a ₱20 bill.

We need each other now more than ever. So, while we’re on that topic, we’ve listed down initiatives and fundraising campaigns that you can volunteer in or donate to. If you don’t have the resources to donate, don’t worry!—a simple “share” or repost on your social media can go a long way. On that note, let’s begin:

For Personal Protective Equipment

The frontline health workers and medical professionals are facing a shortage of personal protective equipment such as surgical masks, N95 masks, face shields, gloves, and more. Because we’re facing a shortage amid the increasing cases of COVID-19 patients, our healthcare workers are more vulnerable. Here’s where to help:

Tulong Kabataan – UP Manila
