There are close to 5 million Filipino Americans with close ties to their relatives in the Philippines; and also 300,000 American citizens residing in the country. Hospitals are full and there is a dire need for therapeutics, ventilators, preventive education, PPEs, disinfection protocols, and vaccines.
The following toolkit serves as a reference for the #ModernaVax2PH Campaign being led by the Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO). Of the 20 million Moderna vaccine doses that have been ordered and paid for by the Philippines, FYLPRO is asking for at least 3 million to be expedited from the proposed timeline of June-July to May. We appeal for humanitarian assistance for the longest COVID-19 emergency and enhanced lockdown that is now occurring in the Philippines.

There are many ways to support this #ModernaVax2PH campaign. Write letters to President Biden, US Agency for International Development Acting Administrator Gloria Steele, US State Department Secretary Antony Blinken and to both of your U.S. representatives and U.S. senators - asking them to urge President Biden to approve the immediate release of at least 3 million US Moderna vaccines, that have already been purchased, for the Filipino People.
