As you may well be aware, Boracay is currently closed to tourists for a six-month rehabilitation. The sudden close-down left many of Boracay’s residents and workers without a source of income. Although the government has promised that there are (enough) funds to aid the people who have lost their means of livelihood, there’s still a need for something more certain and stable in the meantime.

Some of Boracay’s most loved restaurants are flying in to Manila for several pop-ups, aiming to help provide additional income for their workers—the chefs, waiters, and other staff—that are currently out of work.
