Summary

The Covid-19 virus has afflicted the Philippines, where civil conflict, malnutrition and natural disasters have caused suffering for millions of Filipino children. This program now protects medical workers, 3,000 elementary school children and their elders. We are providing protective gear, hygiene supplies, clean water and basic foods to build stronger immune systems to resist the Covid-19 crisis. We are seeking to add protection and nutritional programs for at least 500 at-risk children.

Challenge

We will assist 500 additional children in remote provinces. They must overcome extreme poverty, malnutrition and communal violence that is compounded by the physical and economic ravages of the pandemic. We have created a social media network for Muslim and Christian elders and children to share their skills, hopes and dreams. We provide essential health, nutrition, clean water, and hygiene supplies to resist infection.

Solution

This program will assist 3,500 children in elementary schools in Sulu and Visayas. They are overcoming extreme poverty and communal violence through integrated nutrition, clean water, and health support. Mothers and fathers of pupils assist teachers to cook daily meals. We provide health supplies, thousands of books, garden tools and fresh water systems.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term positive impact of this program empowers Christian and Muslim communities to learn from each other through their respective best practices. Asia America Initiative serves as a communication bridge for action. Our social media facilitates transparent communication and dispels fear and myths that alienate communities who feel alone and abandoned. Starting in schools, positive interaction and equal treatment of various cultural groups by AAI facilitates mutual respect and inspiration.
