"Eat. Donate." was made with love for the Filipino community.
Instigated by Haniely Fernandez' own relief effort in Toronto, the poster dually served as the menu for the Filipino breakfast themed fundraising event and as a call to action to raise money for the survivors of Leyte during the aftershock of the worst typhoon (Haiyan) to ever hit the Philippines in 2014.
The event raised over $1,000.

"There is something to be said about the resilience and dedication of migrant healthcare workers. But this comes with a high price. In these drawings, I want to show the discrepancy of caregiving because in truth, their own health is sometimes neglected for the sake of others. The drawings ask, if healthcare workers are caring for us, who is caring for them? The drawings remind us that even the strongest and the most resilience people need our help."
"Draining" and "Falling" were commissioned by CATIE as part of its Hepatitis C campaign for Filipino migrant workers. For more info visit the CATIE Hep C website
