As a result of almost 2 years of COVID-19 infection surges, community lockdowns, and closure of the Philippine economy, almost 4M Filipinos became poor during the pandemic (Reuters, 2021). More have gone hungry and were unable to bear additional costs for hygiene, sanitation much less treatment for COVID-19. School closures worsened the already limited access to quality education. Communities were also not spared from other natural disasters destroying homes and affecting mental health.


This project will provide multi-dimensional support to vulnerable families, communities, and organizations in partnership with De La Salle University. While facilitating the development of alternative livelihood opportunities, families will be provided with relief assistance, educational support, emergency assistance, and mental health sessions. Subsidies for the repair of destroyed homes and physical facilities will also be provided.

Long-Term Impact

Providing relief, physical and mental health assistance while developing livelihood opportunities, would help vulnerable communities and organizations to effectively dedicate time and effort towards sustainable activities. Educational assistance for children of vulnerable community leaders would contribute towards ensuring that the next generation in each family would have better livelihood opportunities.
