Summary

Our project aims to expand both our distribution of food supplies and our local production and donation of protective masks for the populations living in the Island province of Mindoro, in the Philippines. Up to now, our organization has been able to successfully deliver food supplies to around 700 families and protective masks to around 2500 beneficiaries, bringing relief to the many families in need.

Challenge

On April 24, lockdown measures were extended until the May 15 across several parts of the country, including the Island province of Mindoro. Such restrictions are jeopardizing the income of several vulnerable families, including native Mangyan families, who, according to a World Bank report, are mainly employed in the informal sector and earn as little as 1 USD per day. Lockdown measures have affected their ability to afford buying food and protective masks, the use of which is mandatory.

Solution

Kito Onlus has engaged in emergency response interventions such as the donation of food supplies to 700 vulnerable families living in villages that are not easily reachable by the coastal road, and the production and distribution of around 2500 protective masks, allowing 5 seamstresses from the native Mangyan community to continue working and receiving a daily income that otherwise, during this lockdown period, they would not have been able to get.

Long-Term Impact

Our project will contribute to successfully overcome this emergency situation, avoiding a further spread of the virus among the local populations, and improving their life expectancy. Furthermore, our interventions will relieve and encourage a feeling of security to the many families psychologically exhausted by the emergency circumstances.
