MANILA, 27 November 2019 – UNICEF Philippines recently launched Basket of Hope – an online campaign to give meaningful gifts this holiday season to help children in need.

How does it work?

For every donation of P500 to the UNICEF Basket of Hope, a giving individual can help provide children with treatments for malnutrition, or education supplies, or access to clean water and hygiene essentials after an emergency. The donation will go directly to children most urgently in need of either at the time of giving.

What your donation can do

  • Education: You can help children go back to school with backpacks and educational supplies.
  • Health: You can help save malnourished children by providing life-saving treatment and ready-to-eat therapeutic food packs.
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene: In times of emergency, you can help affected children get access to clean water and hygiene supplies.

The UNICEF Basket of Hope campaign is led by UNICEF’s three Goodwill Ambassadors Gary Valenciano, Daphne Oseña-Paez, and Anne Curtis and with the support of other celebrities and influencers. Give children the hope they need for a brighter tomorrow. Click here to donate to UNICEF Basket of Hope.
