Many workers, especially freelancers and daily wage earners, are out of a job or have reduced income during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Now that the ECQ has been extended until the end of April 2020, it's only rational to look for other sources of income.
Dingdong Dantes, chairman of the YesPinoy Foundation, shared on his social media pages that the charity organization supports the #SanaOL campaign. It aims to help provide "livelihood opportunities" to Filipinos who want to work while staying home during this COVID-19 health crisis.
With the #SanaOL campaign, Filipinos can find online and alternative jobs, such as work from home and freelance employment. It caters to all individuals who want to earn, including K-12 or high school graduates, individuals with "no experience," and more.
The #SanaOL campaign is a joint initiative of JobStreet Philippines and WorkAbroad.ph, two of the top online job platforms in the country. It also has the support of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
