Webinar on Volunteering at the time of Pandemic in the Philippines

Ano ang Volunteering Continuity Plans Natin?

WEBINAR RATIONALE:

It is common practice in the private sector to have Business Continuity Plans (BCP) as a tool to manage their risk and to be able to continue providing their products and services given different emergency scenarios. All the companies’ BCP plans were put through a stress test given the ECQ as a result of the Corona Pandemic. Many were caught flatfooted given the unprecedented scale that the pandemic impacted many businesses and many had to quickly adapt to survive.

Similarly the Volunteer Sector was also placed in a quandry with the imposition of the enhanced community quarantine limiting mobility not to mention the real possibility of contracting the Corona Virus while in the act of volunteering.  The issue of “duty of care” was also a main consideration both for the volunteer and volunteer receiving organization. Another concern was whether “makakatulong nga ba or makakabigat pa ang mga volunteer” given the specific skill sets being required in battling COVID-19 in the frontlines.

And yet, volunteer our people did, in spite and despite the ECQ and Corona Virus. The webinar will explore the different forms of volunteering that transpired during the lockdown and how the different limitations were addressed and overcome. It will highlight the organizations that were able to quickly adapt to the scenario that faced us all and yet effectively tapped into the spirit of volunteerism and bayanihan among Filipinos.
