At a time when the country is facing one of its darkest days—thousands of Filipinos left out of work, leaders struggling to heed calls to find the best solutions—positivity and kindness have never become more important.
With this in mind, advocacy organizations like World Vision Philippines have become even more devoted to their mission of helping the marginalized. World Vision Philippines, in particular, continues to deliver educational assistance to children, parents, and communities amid the COVID-19 crisis.

“We are excited to raise our One Voice for Children through the combined talents of our celebrity ambassadors. This time of great crisis, your support means a lot to children”, said Mr. Rommel Fuerte, National Director for World Vision Philippines.
