The National Capital Region (NCR), Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal are once again under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). For many marginalized families, this poses another challenge in making ends meet and increases the risk of widespread hunger.
Given this, Globe continues to encourage customers to join its initiatives to help address hunger among at-risk families especially with the limitations in movement brought about by another COVID-19 surge. Customers may donate to Globe’s partner organizations: Walang Iwanan Alliance (WIA), Rise Against Hunger (RAH), and Gawad Kalinga’s Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK) via Globe Rewards or GCash.
Walang Iwanan Alliance is a citizen-led initiative to build a platform that unites all efforts to mitigate or end hunger in the most vulnerable communities across the country, especially those deeply affected by the pandemic. Its goal is to set up a vast network of anti-hunger advocates and the corresponding systems that can allow quicker and more effective responses where hunger arises.
Rise Against Hunger Philippines’ mission is to end hunger by providing food and life-saving aid to the most vulnerable. It provides hunger relief and develops programs that provide meals to school children, pregnant and lactating women and their families, and indigenous tribes.
Gawad Kalinga’s Kusina ng Kalinga is a campaign of Gawad Kalinga to end hunger. By providing lunch meals to kids who face the threats of poverty, disaster, and/or conflict, Kusina ng Kalinga gives the children the nourishment they need providing them a chance to grow up to their full potential. Donating P30 pesos will feed one child for one day.
