Our efforts to prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19 continues as our field teams distributed hygiene and cleaning kits last January 18 to 21.
A total of 4,269 beneficiaries from evacuation centers and transitory sites across selected areas in Lanao del Sur and North Cotabato were reached.
With funding from USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance, the distributions were conducted as part of our COVID-19 Emergency WASH Assistance for conflict and earthquake affected families in Mindanao.
It’s been more than a year since the first COVID case in the Philippines was reported, and now the country is recorded to have more than 500,000 cases to date. We are continuously engaging communities to practice safety measures against the coronavirus through our hygiene promotion sessions, especially now that the new COVID variant is present in the country.
