The Future of Emmaus (2020 and Beyond)
As Emmaus enters the new era of change and development, it seeks to partner with local and foreign donors who have the heart to help and assist individuals and families in this uncertain time of pandemic and natural calamities. The Philippines, which is badly hit by the Covid-19 disease heeds the call of the government to mobilize and solicit kind donors from corporations or individuals who can extend various financial and non-financial assistance to our worthy causes, as such, we have partnered with local and international donors to facilitate the timely delivery of medical supplies (N95 mask, face shield), research & development systems, and food packs in the service to the underprivilege Filipinos.
The financial assistance brought about by our donors will also provide the timely construction of our new corporate building in Sampaloc, Manila and other facilities in Rodriguez, Rizal that can highlight better charitable service to our stakeholders.
We thank our donors for giving us the opportunity to share and care the much needed assistance at this crucial time to the various communities and also assist the government in providing additional support to feed more hungry and shelter homeless Filipinos.
