Amnesty Canada’s work on the Philippines is currently primarily coordinated by a volunteer working from Winnipeg, with guidance and support provided by staff members in Amnesty International (AI). The current volunteer “Philippines Coordinator” is responsible for a large volume of work on human rights issues in the Philippines. If Amnesty Canada had another volunteer or two interested in working on the Philippines, this would reduce the pressure on the current Philippines Coordinator and also allow Amnesty Canada to expand our campaigning work and organizing capacity on human rights issues in the Philippines.
