After two years living with COVID-19, cases have declined and most people are now adjusting as quarantine regulations are easing under the new normal. However, the effects of the pandemic can still be felt around the world, especially among the most vulnerable populations.
According to the Philippine Statistics Authority, there are 3.53 million out of school children and youth in the country, with 597,000 child laborers working in hazardous or harmful conditions. These children are more at risk to the negative effects of the pandemic, and now more than ever, there’s a reason to help them.
In line with this, World Vision in the Philippines launched the “Reasons Campaign” aiming to raise awareness and rally support for children through the organization’s sponsorship program. With the urgent need to help one another through the worst humanitarian crisis in decades, each of us has the ability to care for those around us, especially those who are more vulnerable and less able to seek the assistance that they need.
“Through the Reasons Campaign, World Vision encourages people to make a lasting difference in children’s lives. It is our prayer that God will continue to bless you, and we thank you for being with us in bringing hope, joy and justice for all children,” said Rommel V. Fuerte, National Director of World Vision Development Foundation.
There have never been more reasons to sponsor a child than today, and you can be one of the reasons to give them hope. Through World Vision’s Reasons Campaign, the organization aims to support and empower children and communities in the country.
