MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Around 15 million Filipinos reportedly experienced involuntary hunger last year, according to the Social Weather Stations. This continuing struggle came amid the lingering pandemic in the country which, at its height, saw record unemployment rates and an economic downturn.
As the nation treads the path to recovery, Globe’s Hapag Movement aims to rally Filipinos behind a collective effort to help feed the hungry.
The Hapag Movement is telecommunications giant Globe’s unified fight against hunger through technology. It connects multi-sectoral partners that can contribute to addressing hunger and joblessness to achieve social impact at scale.
