Unfortunately, the situation in the region around Olongapo in the Philippines, which was severely affected by Corona, has hardly improved in recent months. Therefore, the authorities have ordered that trainings can only take place digitally until at least the end of the year. Since a digital format is unfortunately not practical for our tailor training courses, we also have to pause our training program until further notice. However, the employees of our local partner organization will continue to use the time and materials available to produce urgently needed protective clothing for hospitals as well as masks, which will then be donated.

It is not clear if and when we will be able to support training in the Philippines again.
