March 16, 2020, the entire island of Luzon, Philippines was placed under quarantine due to a growing number of COVID-19 cases, forcing almost all businesses to close. We are based in Quezon City, a city of about 2.9 million people. With businesses closed, suspended public transport & slow government's response to the crisis, poor families of daily wage earners are now left unsure of where to get food for the next weeks! Please help us give nutritious meals to thousands of families affected.
As of August 14, there are 265,888 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines. With companies forcibly closed or with a skeletal workforce and public transport in partial operation, families of daily wage earners are left vulnerable to HUNGER. Immediate help is needed to provide decent meals for these families. Priority will be on children and pregnant women who are the most affected as they do not have access to meals that meet their nutritional needs.
People are in need of food assistance as they are restricted to go out of their homes to avoid further spread of COVID-19. These relief meal packs will be given to affected families with priority on children and pregnant women to ensure that they have food not only to address hunger but will also meet their nutritional needs.
Reach Out and Feed Philippines remains true to its vision to see every Filipino child healthy, nourished and empowered to reach their maximum potential for growth and learning. At this time of crisis, the daily wage earners are UNABLE to provide food for their children. Please help us in protecting these kids from HUNGER and MALNUTRITION.
