According to author Anya Santos-Uy: “This pandemic has put a strain on our already less-than-ideal public education system. I thought about the children, whose families were greatly affected by the loss of income brought about by the lockdowns. If food was a challenge, what more educational materials? Feeding kids’ stomachs is just as important as feeding their minds.”
