Our Beloved Partners and Friends!
Warm greetings from Precious Heritage!
Philippines tops the list of countries affected by Covid-19 in the whole Asia. Everyday, more than 200 cases are added and mortality rate is higher than those who recovers.
Due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine, people are barred from working. The food supplies from our government are not sufficient for the normal consumption of a family thus going out to look for food, medicine and other needs cause people to become restless. Though some families received amelioration from the government, but majority didn’t.
Precious Heritage, having community-based programs is in contact with the poorest of the poor. Beneficiaries of feeding and scholarship programs are greatly affected by this pandemic. One child beneficiary said to our social worker; “Covid-19 made our lives more miserable, before we eat at least 2x a day, now we are lucky if we have even rice on our table”. It is really heart-breaking to hear it from a 6 year-old.
