9 days from now, (March 11th) will mark two full years since children in the Philippines were last allowed to step into a formal classroom. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions imposed on children, almost all public schools in the Philippines have remained shut.
Since the pandemic began some 750 days ago, FundLife has been responding to reach children who have been worse impacted by the restrictions to their learning and personal well-being. In the last three months, here are some of the noticeable updates and accomplishments we have managed to achieve due to your ongoing support and contributions*;
In addition to the continuation of our direct learning initiatives, FundLife has also been working directly with local education officials, advocating and campaigning for additional learning spaces to be opened for the safe reopening of schools so all children can return to full-time education.
Over the coming weeks, FundLife plans to further extend our reach to children by launching the following new activities in March;
During these distressing times in the Philippines and also the world over, we remain grateful for your ongoing support of our work. Our lines remain open should you have any further questions about our COVID-19 response as well as post-COVID-19 programming that is slowly starting to be delivered.
With sincere gratitude,

As a result of the typhoon, many of our regular programs in Cebu were impacted for a number of weeks.
