The organization launches fundraising campaign called Basket of Hope 2020
Covid-19 isn’t just challenging under-resourced fragile health systems, it’s attacking the way children access education and how safe they feel in their homes. This is, no doubt, a child right’s crisis.
In the Philippines, 2.4 million children below five years old are at risk of getting measles due to low immunization coverage. One in three children is stunted due to poor nutrition and care practices, too.
Right now, UNICEF is on the ground doing everything in its power to ensure that children don’t feel the impact of this crisis for decades to come. Through the Basket of Hope, the organization gives us, the Filipino community, a platform to share and pay it forward.
“It is important now more than ever to help these disadvantaged children. Brighter days are possible when we all pitch in,” says UNICEF Philippines representative Oyunsaikhan Dendevnorov.
With a minimum donation of P300, you can help Filipino children get access to vaccines, education, hygiene, and nutrition.
Donors can also get to choose from these three causes they want to support: making e-learning accessible to elementary students, providing isolation tents and hygiene supplies for health facilities, and funding transport of health workers to vaccinate children in remote areas.
A donation, no matter how small, can make an impact on a child whose health, safety, education, and rights are at risk. With everyone’s help, UNICEF will do whatever it takes to ensure children and their families get the urgent support they need.
The campaign is led by UNICEF’s goodwill ambassadors Gary Valenciano, Daphne Oseña-Paez, and Anne Curtis.
