COVID-19 Update for Hands of Mercy
Sally says: “The Hands of Mercy office in the Philippines remains open - Joey and I can’t work from home because we don’t have a good internet connection. The Ichthus water station is also open. The supplementary feeding programme is suspended because children are not allowed out of their homes. However, I have just had word that the leaders have been delivering rice to the most desperate in need and they are really grateful. The lock down is extended until 30th April.”
“At the moment we need your prayers. It seems like the Covid patients here are increasing. the poorest of communities are struggling most with the Covid-19 pandemic situation. The government is strict about people going out. We have to get a Barangay pass to be able to go out from the house with a valid reason. The Water station is allowed to operate as this is needed by people. I have to give an employment certificate to Ichthus staff to allow them to deliver water. Without it they will be fined 5,000pesos.”
