Emergency Response: Through JPN Member organizations working for Philippine people and children affected by COVID-19

Apr 17, 2020

 Ongoing coronavirus crisis has affected many of us in the world, especially those who are socially marginalized such as street dwellers and children in the Philippines. The whole Luzon island and other parts of the country have been under lockdown for a month. Those who work and earn on streets have no income, because many people are now put on community quarantine (lockdown) and obliged to stay at home.
As of April 7, 2020, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines reached 3,660 and the number is still increasing.

 To respond to the COVID-19 crisis, first, we did a quick survey of 16 member organizations and collected information about their response to their Philippine partners and beneficiaries. As a result, below is the information we received from our member organizations. There are ACTION, ACCESS, LOOB JAPAN and several more JPN organizations are now preparing to join assistance activities. We keep updating information about their assistance activities on our website.

 Your kind cooperation and support to them would be very much appreciated. Please select one or more organizations you would like to support from below. To give your donations, please go to their respective website.
