(Philstar.com) - March 17, 2020 - 5:41pm

MANILA, Philippines (Update 7: March 26, 2020; 7:00 p.m.) — Several organizations and institutions are appealing for medical supplies, food and other basic necessities as the country grapples to stem the spread of the new coronavirus. 

The confirmed infections in the Philippines soared to 707 Thursday afternoon with 45 deaths. The country has so far recorded 28 recoveries. 

As health workers work tirelessly to fight the virus, their lives are at risk as the supply of protective gear dwindles. 

Those who live in poor and densely populated areas are also vulnerable to the outbreak. They are the ones who cannot afford to stockpile food, stay home from work, avoid large crowds and go to a doctor if they are not feeling well. 

Here is a running list of fundraisers and donation drives to support the frontliners and those in need:
