Amlig is an Ilonggo term that literally means “to care.” The Amlig Project in Bacolod City was born out of the heart and mission of Batch 2007 from Trinity Christian School. Half of their batchmates work in the medical frontlines so they are doing their best to help their friends as well as other healthcare workers in Negros Occidental.
Caring for Their Batchmates
Trinity Christian School Batch 2007 graduated from high school armed with much hope for the future. Emboldened with Christian values, they sought to change the world in whatever way they can.
Many of them went into the medical field as nurses while some of them proceeded to become doctors. They are now scattered around the country and abroad. But still, many have stayed in their hometown, Bacolod City.
Covid-19 Happened: The Amlig Project
But late last year, Covid-19 happened. And this year, we have seen how this novel coronavirus has changed the whole world.
Many healthcare workers have been infected and a big percentage have passed away because of the infection and complication.
The Batch 2007 alumni could not just sit down as the whole world crumbles because Covid-19. They teamed up to extend help not just to their batchmates but also to other healthcare workers. That is why, The Amlig Project was born.
As they work together, they hope to be fair and unbiased in distribution. Moreover, they want to be transparent with the money that was entrusted to The Amlig Project.

Many private corporations and individuals have been helping the Philippine government to fight Covid-19. Megaworld has recently donated four high-tech Covid-19 testing laboratories to the Philippine Red Cross.
Multi-national corporations have teamed up to form Project Ugnayan, a movement to help everyone. They give food packs, meals, and medical supplies to practically almost everybody.
But these are not enough. If we have nothing to share, the best thing that we can do is to obey the health protocols given to us. Stay safe at home if you don’t need to go out. If you do need to run errands and such, wear a face mask and observe social distancing.
