DONATE | Help Our Frontliners While in the Comfort of Your Home during COVID Crisis

As we hope that our country goes through this challenge smoothly, may we all be reminded that we have thousands of front liners out there facing coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) who will be needing our help.

Despite the difficulty of living associated with the enhanced community quarantine, online banking has served as a linkage to direct donations without having to physically be there. Yes, you are reading that right. You can send help to our hardworking health workers online.

In line with this, several groups are raising funds to assist the frontliners, service personnel, homeless, displaced employees and families who almost have nothing. Using your smartphone, you can now be able to provide for the basic necessities of those who are in the front line and of those who are in need of assistance. Pay for testing kits. Send liters of alcohol and boxes of face mask. They are our first line of defense and we cannot afford to lose anyone of them.

Attached in this post is a LINK to an excel file (spreadsheet) of aid groups which will allow you to help out not just our frontliners, but also the most economically vulnerable people in our community.

Please do not though that:
This tracker is meant to organize information and help people find ways to help out. Since we can’t control what’s going to be shared here, please exert due diligence by checking the credibility of the organizations/groups/people where you’ll be donating your hard-earned money to their contact details and links are provided so please go ahead and call or message them before and after you donate.
