COVID Conversations: Naomi Fontanos on the Effects of the Pandemic

Every single one of us has been affected by this pandemic, but undeniably, the health and economic impacts are more felt by those at the margins.

Last week, Innovation for Change – East Asia hosted the first in our series of #COVIDConversations, focusing on how the marginalized respond to COVID-19.

Naomi Fontanos, Executive Director of GANDA Filipinas, helped moderate last Wednesday’s discussion, and she started us off with this very real reminder: “Many people have been referring to COVID-19 as the great equalizer, but we can just imagine how much more vulnerable the marginalized are right now.”
