Supporting Local Farmers and Urban Poor Communities

Several communities in the Philippines have been hit hard by the pandemic. They have already been in a difficult situation before and COVID-19 has only dug these urban poor communities deeper into their problems. These people are often neglected and overlooked especially during times like this. We can help these people by being active in spreading awareness and donating to different initiatives such as Lingap Maralita.

Lingap Maralita is an initiative by various organizations with the goal to help local farmers and urban poor communities. The farmers, who provide us with our daily food, along with other frontline small-scale producers, have come together to help these food-insecure communities get through the pandemic. This initiative supplies communities with fresh produce directly sourced from the farmers which also provides income for them.

Together we can help each other survive this pandemic while keeping our interconnected system of farmers, collaborators, and communities thriving. This is a call for action and solidarity, and to advocate for their rights more than ever. Largely invisible, they are actually the ones who help our society run smoothly and they need our help now!

You may not know it but a small pledge can really go a long way!

  • PhP500 can feed 3 families
  • PhP750 can feed 5 families
  • PhP1000 can feed 6 families

Acceler8 has made an effort to give back to the community as we try to bounce back together! We wanted to create a way to help our clients, the farmers, and the urban poor communities with no access to food. This is why we partnered with the Lingap Maralita initiative through our Virtual Office promo! 

Through this initiative, along with Pinagkaisahang Lakas ng Mamamayan and the Good Food Community, we were already able to help 400 families in the Golden Shower community of Payatas, Quezon City. You could also help this initiative while helping your own business at the same time! 

If you are looking for a Virtual Office plan to help with your business’ registration and compliance, why not help these communities at the same time? With every purchase of a Virtual Office plan, a part of the proceeds goes to the Lingap Maralita initiative! Learn more about our Bounce Back promo by sending us an email at connect@acceler8.ph and we’d be more than happy to help with your inquiry!
