CCARPH Advisor Dr. Anna Marie “Jing” Karaos was invited as guest speaker in the Radyo Katipunan show, The Jesuit Hour with Fr. Nono Alfonso, SJ, on April 23, 2020. Dr. Karaos shares her insights on the plight of the poor during the COVID-19 Pandemic, by highlighting and calling for equal distribution of goods and other types of aidfrom the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, especially to the most vulnerable sectors across the country. At the end of the interview, Dr. Karaos invites the listeners, as Pope Francis has, into solidarity—that we, Filipinos, may be able to extend our help, thoughts, and prayers to spaces and individuals who are most in need.
