Gender and Development Daanbantayan Campus
GAD advocate volunteers to support the frontliners during COVID 19 Pandemic
The Gender and Development volunteers led by Dr. Marlou Godinez from the Daanbantayan Campus supported the frontliners by sewing facemasks and giving sacks of rice to the eight local checkpoints at the northern part of Cebu province during the Pandemic crisis.
Dr. Godinez said, “COVID-19 continues to encircle its way around the globe and being a Gender and Development (GAD) advocate, I was happy to be called on duty to extend help to our frontliners. Women, men, and members of the LGBTQ community who heartily volunteered to support out frontliners worked tirelessly and unconditionally to distribute masks to eight local checkpoints in the northern area of Cebu and also to our heroes from Red Cross and Coast Guard.”
She added that, “with the help of God, we were also able to distribute 2600 kilograms of rice to our brothers and sisters that struggled the most due to this pandemic. It is sad when we can only do so little in a crisis this big but seeing the smiles of our brothers, heroes, and the volunteers, seeing MEN, WOMEN, and MEMBERS OF THE LGBTQ braving this pandemic together is already enough to say that this is a beautiful world indeed.”-GAD/MG/rmmm/ccmr
