This paper discusses the philosophical concept of John Rawls on distributive justice and how it can be applied as a possible guide in the Philippine ayuda distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic. First, it discusses how the pandemic affected the Philippine economy and the complaints on the ayuda program regarding the ayuda distribution in the country. Second, it explains Rawlsian distributive justice and Rawlsâ€™ ideas, such as the veil of ignorance, liberty, and difference principles. Lastly, it discusses Rawlsâ€™ notion of distributive justice as a guide in the ayuda distribution to provide a perspective on the equitable and just distribution of benefits given the limited resources. The main point is that the distribution of financial assistance or ayuda can be guided by Rawlsâ€™s notion of distributive justice, which prioritizes the well-being of the least well-off or disadvantaged.
