Philippines ranks 20th world’s most charitable country
UK-based Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has been producing its World Giving Index for more than a decade. The first CAF World Giving Index was published in the wake of the global financial crisis, and now this long-running study has given us the opportunity to look at how the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath have impacted giving around the world.
The study provides combined insight into the scope and nature of giving around the world and looks at three aspects of giving behavior and asks: Have you done any of the following in the past month?
Helped a stranger, or someone you didn’t know who needed help?
Donated money to a charity?
Volunteered your time to an organization?
The Philippines placed 20th out of 119 countries with an overall score of 47% in the 2022 edition of World Giving Index.
The Philippines ranked highest in volunteering time, placing 6th with a score of 39%. This was followed by helping a stranger (rank 15th) and donating money (79th).
