To helping Filipino families recover from the pandemic
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have further increased the number of Filipino families suffering from hunger. As of December 2021, the figure has reached a total of 15 million. At the same time, 3.13 million Filipinos have been left unemployed.
Because of the continuous rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, however, the country has slowly worked its way into operating at near pre-pandemic levels. Still, the current landscape of high unemployment rates and more families living in hunger remain pressing issues. To help address these, Globe has decided to spearhead the Hapag Movement, a program to help uplift vulnerable Filipino families in 2022 and beyond.
Here’s everything you need to know about the initiative and how you can help out.
What is the Hapag Movement?
In partnership with AcadArena, Globe aims to fight hunger in the country through technology, connecting multi-sectoral partners, and tapping the gaming community to contribute to the cause.
The Hapag Movement’s goal is to support 100,000 families or 500,000 individuals to help alleviate hunger and the lack of livelihood opportunities for vulnerable families in the country.
Alongside other Globe of Good programs and Caritas Philippines, Tzu Chi Foundation Philippines, and Ayala Foundation’s #BrigadangAyalaKaakay Program, the Hapag Movement’s mission is to uphold the United Nations (UN) Global Compact Principles and to fulfill its 10 Sustainable Development Goals.
How to Donate to The Hapag Movement
The fight against hunger doesn’t just call for organizations to take part. It needs to take a holistic approach, achieved only with the help of communities and individuals. Here’s how you can donate and support the advocacy:
