Combat COVID-19: How to donate to Red Cross, Kaya Natin, and more via Lazada

It’s been a week since Metro Manila has been placed under community quarantine in hopes of preventing the spread of COVID-19. While we sit at the comfort of our homes, there are numerous ways to helps out – ranging from in-kind donations to volunteer work. In fact, we’ve created a list of organizations that are continuously accepting donations to assist frontliners and our less fortunate kababayans. Included in our list is Caritas Manila, which can be assisted via Lazada. However, for those who are not yet familiar with the platform, here’s a step-by-step guide and an additional list of advocacy partners that are in need:
