CTU Daanbantayan responds to COVID-19 crisis
The Gender and Development volunteers led by Dr. Marlou Godinez produced facemasks and provided sacks of rice to the eight local checkpoints at the northern part of Cebu province during the covid-19 crisis.
Dr. Godinez said, “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 volunteered to distribute masks to eight local checkpoints in northern Cebu, Red Cross and Coast Guard.”
“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,” she added.
