Online - Philippines - Sabato 17 Ottobre 2020 - Online: Voices of community members

**At ATD Philippines we have started a campaign on our FB account (mostly in Tagalog and some in English). These posts are prepared with community facilitators and our interns. The testimonies are also video recorded.
You can see an example of the posts in the attached picture: "Where is the justice if there are many lies? Deception of the people, poverty is the answer. When will it end?"
We are also producing a video with a message from friends and kids.

 

**We have produced a short film with Teatro Balagtas, played by community members and an actor of Teatro Balagtas. It is the ATD contribution to the online ceremony organised by NAPC (National Anti Poverty Commission) that will take place on October 17.
The title of the film in English is "To those who can see us". Its about the reality of a couple struggling to survive during the Covid-19 Enhance Community Quarantine in the context of non-existent social protection.
The online commemoration with the different messages will be streamed on Facebook from 10 to 13:45 Manila time. We will gather a small group of community facilitators in the office to watch it and be together. (The gathering are still restricted to a maximum of 10 people).

**Three representatives from ATD plus institutions will be able to gather for a short moment at the commemorative stone simultaneously to put some flowers on it in honor of the people in poverty who struggle everyday and the people who work alongside them.
