Despite the stringent effort to curb the pandemic around the globe, the Delta variant found new routes into Southeast Asia. Cases were at all-time high in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. Indonesia has the highest number of cases with 3,854,354 cases and 117,588 deaths followed by the Philippines with 1,741,616 cases and 30,340 deaths and Malaysia with 1,404,899 cases and 12,510 deaths. The highly contagious Delta variant was first detected in India last October and has become the dominant strain worldwide. With this spike in Southeast Asia, many people sought help to help them and their families to raise funds for a variety of causes. During this pandemic, the use of such initiatives has significantly helped individuals or communities requiring money for medical, personal and other expenses.
Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world a lot, we get to see how the weakness of the system and governments are in handling this crisis, we also get to see how people are unprepared and suffering from this pandemic. Crowdfunding became one of the most helpful ways to alleviate their needs, it became a tool to empower them to rise beyond their needs by asking help from kindhearted people across the globe. Crowdfunding provided help to people beyond distance even when people are restricted to even step out of their homes, anyone can donate small amounts in the comfort of their own homes and make a difference in someone’s life. With the current spike in Southeast Asia, many people again turn to crowdfunding as this is the easiest and most powerful way to reach out to people for help.
“Airfunding has been helping a lot of people especially COVID-19 related project overall we have raised $321,518 USD for pandemic related projects in the past year and still gearing up to help more people across the globe get help beyond borders and beyond lockdowns.” – says Ryosuke Abe, CEO of Co-Founder of Kiheitai Inc., the parent group for Airfunding.
