Covid19 caught everyone unprepared. Even the 1st world country got crippled by this little and invisible thing we used to ignore at the beginning...but now, this little thing is causing fear in everyone's heart. No one is safe and nothing is more important now than the safety of the people we love and our own safety.
Here in the Philippines, Enhanced Home Quarantine is already being implemented. Everyone is expected to stay at home. The one's who have a secure home and food to sustain them within 1 month calmly follows the order of the government...but for those who relies to their everyday earnings to have something to eat and survive the night, this lockdown is an inconvenience at best, a matter of life and death at worst. It's a No work, No pay for most workers here in the Philippines so other than fearing dying from Covid19, most of them fears to die because of hunger...not just for theirselves alone but their whole family who relies to their daily earning.
Frontliners such as doctors and nurses are risking their lives taking care of the people who are Covid19 positive and interacting with different people everyday who may or may not have travel histories to affected countries and be considered persons under investigation and might be carriers of Covid19. Being a 3rd world country, Philippines despite the claim of the Government that we are ready for this pandemic shows the opposite. With more than 700 cases (compared to countries with thousand cases), the healthcare supplies and PPE for the medical staffs are already lacking. Despite the government's effort, it's still not enough...that is the reason why I decided to create this campaign.
This collected money in this campaign will be used to buy necessary supplies for Covid19 Help Aid for Filipino people who cannot afford buying them. Supplies which will be included in the kit (as much as possible) will be hand soap, bleach, alcohol, mask, vitamin C, canned goods, rice, and biscuits/bread for those homeless people. Donations for the food, PPE, supplies and equipments of the medical professionals in the different hospitals here in our City especially to the Covid19 Center where persons under investigation and monitoring will be admitted while waiting for their Covid19 test result to be released will also be prioritized.
Pictures and progress of the campaign will be updated once we start buying the supplies and distributing the kits to families and homeless people. And when supplies and protective equipments for the doctors and nurses will be distributed.
Any amount will be HIGHLY APPRECIATED. The cost of your chips and soda will be able to give one meal to one family for one day or save a nurse/doctor or two for the PPE you may provide with your donation.
This is definitely voluntary only because I know all of us around the world is experiencing the same struggle and fear. Prayers for all of us and all the frontliners will be enough and will be highly appreciated. If you are active in social media, please do share this campaign.
In behalf of the Filipino people and the Filipino Nurses/Doctors Frontliners I say my deepest gratitude to all of you! Thank you so much.
