2020 has been an unusual and challenging year for most people. However, when we have reached this far and are still alive, healthy and eating 3 times a day, there is just so much we have to be thankful for.
Recent data shows that the hunger incidence has risen threefold since the outbreak of the pandemic, from 8.8% in December 2019 to 30.7% in September 2020. For details, you may visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7R22r7GTCs&t=1s or https://www.facebook.com/wia.philippines/posts/186346663191902
Through liaison with the Communications Team of Walang Iwanan Alliance, here is a concrete way to channel our generosity and gratefulness.
Walang Iwanan Alliance is a consortium of allies (donors and partners on-the-ground) that seeks to mitigate the growing hunger problem in the country. For more information, visit their website at walangiwananalliance.com or their FB page facebook.com/wia.philippines
