Today, we are bound by a shared sense of uncertainty. Much of what we took for granted has changed forever. Many of us have lost loved ones to this pandemic.
In the Philippines, these agonizing realities are made worse by the government’s Enhanced Community Quarantine, which strangles poor communities by depriving them of work, public transportation, and in many cases, an adequate supply of food.
Despite these hardships, we all have an opportunity to take control of our future by engaging with what is happening around us and taking an active role in demanding accountability from our elected leaders.
COVID-19 has blurred what tomorrow might look like, but we have the power to bring greater clarity for what lies ahead.
