HPF's Youth and Senior Care COVID Relief Fund

The Philippines was hit very hard by the coronavirus pandemic and various typhoons, with millions of people left unemployed, struggling, and without power. As the Harvard Philippine Forum, a club dedicated to promoting Filipinx culture in Harvard, we wanted to take this opportunity to fundraise for these individuals, to ensure that both the children and the elderly of Zamboanga city have access to necessities such as food, water, electricity, and hygiene products. 

The following are the organizations we hope to fundraise for:

DSWD Home for the Elderly
The DSWD Home for the Elderly serves senior citizens in Zamboanga city. Donations would help us purchase adult diapers, wipes, biscuits, face masks, vitamins, tissues, and powdered milk for their residents. 

Orphanage Reception and Study Center for Children
The Orphanage Reception and Study Center for Children serves children as young as 3 months old. Donations would help us purchase PPE, face masks and face shields for both children and the staff, vitamins for children, milk for children, diapers, and toiletries.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone and it may not be possible to donate. Even if you give $1, this would provide face masks for five individuals. If you give $5, this would provide wipes for an elderly individual for a week or a set of vitamins for siblings for two weeks. If you give $10, this would provide face shields for the entire orphanage. If you give $20, this would provide power for the orphanage for three days. These amounts may seem small - they are the cost of a cup of coffee or a takeout meal - but they make a difference. 

We’d also love for you to share this information with any individuals you might think would be willing to donate to this cause. If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about what we are hoping to accomplish!
