Conquering COVID-19: The Philippines
The coronavirus is wreaking havoc across the globe. The virus is affecting people's livelihood, and those who were suffering financially from before the pandemic are now having a hard time putting food on the table. In the Philippines, a Japanese non-governmental organization continues its activities to help poor families, braving the risk of infection. We focus on one Japanese and his local staff who deliver relief supplies to those in need in the face of various restrictions. (This program was broadcast on October 15, 2020.)
