Advisory on community quarantine in Manila

March 16, 2020

In light of the community quarantine measures currently in effect in the National Capital Region in the Philippines, the NTFP-EP Asia office will continue to operate at a limited capacity until the community quarantine is lifted. This is to ensure the safety of our team, our partners and the community at large in compliance with national policies and guidelines.

During this period, domestic and international travel will be restricted, working hours will be limited and work-from-home arrangements have been put in place to minimize risk. For queries and other matters, you may continue to contact us as usual through online means.

Now. more than ever, we must all do our part to contain the spread of COVID-19 especially for the benefit of the most vulnerable and most in need. This is a problem that no single entity, sector or individual can solve alone. We encourage everyone to promote compassion, humanity and sensible cooperation in times of crisis.

Thank you.
