The current health situation has given unprecedented challenges for the entire country with thousands of Filipinos being affected, many more losing their jobs and feeling uncertain for their family's future. And while all this is happening, some children are becoming more vulnerable while staying at home due to the increased exposure to poor nutrition, poor sanitation, domestic abuse, and loss of education, among others. Without immediate action, the lives and future of these young ones may be put in peril.
One of the ways to reach out is through Bantay Bata 163, the child welfare arm of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. This advocacy was established to help serve, protect, and create a better world for the Filipino youth through a nationwide network of social services.
Through the child helpline 1-6-3, Bantay Bata provides legal services and shelter for abused children, helping them heal and have a safer and more caring environment to live in. By conducting various training, seminars, and conferences, this platform hopes to prevent child abuse, uphold the rights of children, and disseminate knowledge on laws, techniques, and systems in protecting them.
Bantay Bata 163 also spearheads feeding programs and educational scholarships for children who simply have less in life, empowering them with proper education and nutrition to help them reach their dreams. It also gives medical assistance to children whose families cannot afford treatment and offers them rehabilitation in times of crisis.
Help uplift the way of life of these Filipino children by donating here.
Aside from Bantay Bata 163, people can also support the efforts of Unilever. This initiative is made to help children continue their studies as the country prepares for a new normal education setup.
