(1) LanguageWarriors PH
An initiative to create a network of translators to translate COVID-19 materials into the country’s many languages and dialects, in order to address gaps in information available to Filipinos that are in languages that they can easily understand. To see the materials translated so far, go here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LanguageWarriorsPH/

A thousand cranes and a collective wish to #endcovid19
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish by the gods.
Upload a picture of your paper crane to bit.ly/athousandcranes_ph and check the IG account: https://instagram.com/athousandcranes_ph.
(3) Linguistics Scholarship & Wellness Fund – Emergency Financial Assistance
Through the help of the donations from Lingg alumni, we have been able to send financial assistance to some of our Lingg majors whose families’ sources of income have been cut off due to the lockdown.
(4) UP Lingg Tambayan
In an effort to keep in touch with our students, staff and alumni during this period when mental health can easily decline due to social isolation, the UP Lingg Tambayan was created as a virtual space where we can continue to communicate with and support each other.
The Department of Linguistics is currently in work-from-home set-up. If you have any questions, feel free to DM us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you all again soon!
