The global Covid-19 pandemic has put our beautiful world into a desperate and bleak scenario. Without a cure or vaccine, we seem to be in a hopeless and dark situation with no end in sight. Mental illness has bothered us more than the virus because of desperation, hopelessness, and isolation. Thankfully, the Filipino is resilient. We have organizations like The Frontliner Today that have been formed in order to bring hope amidst the Covid-19 crisis.

Food for Frontliners Philippines continues to work even after the lockdown because the Covid-19 threat still prevails.

Founded last April 19, 2020 by Chief Executive Officer Coleen Danielle Natividad and founding editor Serina Mara Alonzo, The Frontliner Today collects stories of resilience and hope. These stories are mostly about people–such as healthcare workers, service attendants, and other community helpers who risk their lives and safety during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Additionally, they also write about narratives of resilience so that they can inspire hope through the power of a story. All these are shared online.

Their Worthy Vision

The Frontliner Today envisions itself as a leading online media organization with a purpose. They are out to transform the entire nation of the Philippines by fostering human connections through our purposeful narrative works.

Their Values

The group operates with seven (7) core values, namely:

  • Nationalism
  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Competence
  • Democracy
  • Excellence
  • Credibility

They believe that these values will help them fulfill the mission that they have set out to do for the Filipino people.

There might be physical distancing, but in reading these stories, there’s definitely no social distancing.
