Alonzo stated that the group was on its second wave of helping communities. I Am Hope’s COVID-19 relief efforts initially began with helping frontline workers by providing them personal protective equipment, food and medical supplies.

For its second run, Alonzo and her team will focus on feeding communities and helping with their livelihood during this quarantine period.

Alonzo’s group previously handed out food to stranded students at the University of the Philippines Diliman and frontliners working with Vice President Leni Robredo. It also gave relief goods to jeepney drivers in Manila while their livelihood is put on hold due to the community quarantine. NVG
