COVID-19 Emergency Response

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the survivors we serve faced job-loss, devastating poverty, and fear for their health and safety. But 2020 will also go down in history for the compassion and generosity our partners and supporters poured out for those who have survived exploitation, trafficking, and violence in the Philippines.

The Philippines sustained one of the world’s longest and most severe lockdowns – 306 days and counting as of January 31, 2021.

In April 2020, the Philippines unemployment rate hit a record high of 17%.

Between March and May 2020, 60% of employed survivors in our care lost their jobs or reported such severe loss of income they couldn’t buy food.

Between March and May 2020, reported cases of online sexual exploitation tripled in the Philippines.

Over 300 cash transfers sent to survivors in our care. They bought milk, fruit and vegetables, canned goods, diapers, and other essentials for themselves and their children.

As survivors spun into crisis during the pandemic, your generosity sustained our frontline team as they provided daily support, including 1900 counseling sessions by phone, to victims of violence and trafficking.

By August 2020, 56% of those survivors got their jobs back, or found new employment.

With the support of our partners and donors, our frontline team pivoted quickly. All education and job training programs moved online ensuring survivors continued to receive schooling and workplace training during lockdowns.

“I will always be grateful being part of the 10ThousandWindows family. During the pandemic, when everything seemed uncertain, they did not leave us behind. They continued to check on us and asked how we are doing.”

– Anne, victim of exploitation.
