Our Annual Report’s theme for 2021 is Hope and Optimism. Despite of the extended quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Virlanie are still grateful, hopeful and optimistic as the year ended.
With the continuous commitment of the Virlanie staff and unending support of our donors, supporters and partners, we survived. Virlanie was able to continue its advocacy and programs of supporting the children and family in need.
This report is also an opportunity for us to highlight the lessons that we have learned in this challenging time – adaptability with the virtual and hybrid set-up, the value of our health and our families especially the needs of the children and our overall mission and purpose in life.
