From the Filipino Students' Association of Scarborough (FSAS):
"The Philippines has been under one of the longest lockdowns in the world due to Covid-19, and is also ranked #1 in Covid cases in Southeast Asia. Our kababayans are suffering not only in terms of proper healthcare but also with their livelihoods. We, the Filipino Student Association of Scarborough, are initiating a GoFundMe Page to raise funds to help those who are in need -- the less fortunate, the marginalized people, the neglected kababayans. Many hospitals and front-liners also do not have enough resources and PPEs to continue protecting themselves and others during this crisis. We aim to provide them with PPEs and other aid that will help them get back on their feet. We hope to gain support from our FSAS and UTSC community for this cause over the next few weeks. Thank you in advance for your support, whether it be monetary or simply sharing this fundraiser!"
