Where To Donate Cash And Supplies To Help Fight COVID-19

5 min. read By eCompareMo on

(Editor’s Note: eCompareMo is one with our frontliners in helping fight the spread of the new coronavirus. If you have tips on organizations in need of donations, or are part of a movement requesting for help, you may send your requests through our Facebook page and we will share your announcement/s here.)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re weathering out the COVID-19 situation due to the community quarantine enforced by the government. Your shelves are sufficiently stocked and you and your family are comfortably entertained with your smartphones and TVs.

However, there are brave Filipinos out there who are deployed on the frontlines to fight off the spread of the disease. Although the human spirit is almost inextinguishable, their supplies are not. Face masks, disinfectants, and other consumables are badly needed by medical practitioners, border patrols, and other personnel at risk of contracting COVID-19.

Fortunately, we can contribute to this bigger fight even from the comforts of our own homes. If you have some extra cash or supplies to spare, here are some of the legitimate outlets you can help.

In turn, these entities will help those in need so we can all finally return to our normal lives.
