COVID Relief: #StandWithThePoor in the Philippines

Urgent COVID-19 Fundraising Appeal:  Support Organizing and Relief
#StandWithThePoor and Homeless in the Philippines

KADAMAY is the Philippines’ largest alliance of the urban poor people.  Since 1998, it has worked to expose and oppose unjust housing policies and worsening human rights atrocities.  In 2017, KADAMAY mobilized 12,000 homeless Filipinos to occupy 6,000 vacant and unused housing units just outside Metro Manila.  “Occupy Bulacan” continues to this day.

Philippine President Duterte's administration is using the COVID-19 pandemic as a pretext to further expand militarization and criminalize homelessness, while depriving the population of badly needed health services and access to their basic needs.  Duterte has put Metro Manila and the entire island of Luzon on lockdown.  Street dwellers are being arrested and slum communities demolished with their inhabitants thrown in jail.

Poor families are going hungry on a widespread basis because people are prohibited from making a living.  

Please donate to support KADAMAY’s relief efforts and organizing in response to COVID-19!  Your donation will go to support providing: food; safe water; urgently needed health supplies like disinfectant alcohol, face masks, and vitamins; and financial assistance.
