“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”
- Roy T. Bennett
During this time of crisis, where most people are down, it's a good time to show or be someone's light.
Here are few ways we can help and show our togetherness or live the "bayanihan" spirit.
Ba11kbayani is a non-profit organisation aiming to help Filipinos health workers in the UK. They currently have the #move11k fundraising campaign aimed to help the families of our fallen comrades.
SUPPORT our Fallen Comrades by Donating to their GoFundme pages.
According to Philippine Embassy, as of April 20, we have at least 50 confirmed Filipino deaths in the UK (including those working in the health care/non-health care sectors). The families of a number of our fallen heroes need financial support to cover for the funeral costs, repatriation and other needs.
