Amidst the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine in the country due to the spread of the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) members in the MIMAROPA Region join together to help frontliners in their respective localities.
Bagtingon Sewers SLPA in Buenavista, Marinduque sewed and donated a total of 24 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) gowns to the Marinduque Provincial Health Office last April 14, 2020.
The sewers from Bagtingon, Buenavista volunteered to sew these gowns as response to the plea of the fronliners for the shortage of PPEs amidst the implementation of ECQ in the Province.
The production of PPEs was made possible through the generosity of several donors who provided materials like fiber twill, threads, needles, and garters.
The Provincial Government of Marinduque expressed its gratitude and appreciation to the Bagtingon Sewers.
On the other hand, the Gobon SLPA in Corcuera, Romblon passed a resolution gathering a portion of their income to donate 30 packs of rice to the frontliners in their barangay.
According to the members, it is just their simple way to give back to the people who are risking their lives in order to protec
t their community.
The Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) is a capability-building program for poor, vulnerable and marginalized households and communities to improve their socio-economic conditions through accessing and acquiring necessary assets to engage in and maintain thriving livelihoods.###
