Quezon City, Philippines – The Good Neighbors Philippines (GNPHL) held a house-to-house distribution activity in Sitio Bakal and Sitio Ibayo in Brgy. Bagong Silangan, Quezon City, continuously assisting during this time of the pandemic.
“We aim to help the Sitio Bakal community because of the COVID-19 situation. This is the response of Good Neighbors to ensure that no Filipino will starve from hunger,” said Lorelyn Tamares, Field Manager of Sitio Bakal CDP.
(Ito ay naglalayon na matulungan natin yung mga taga Sitio Bakal dahil sa usapin ng COVID-19, ito iyong Response ng Good Neighbors para ma-ensure na walang nagugutom na mga kababayan nation.)
The distribution almost helped 1000 families and 350 children, 188 sponsored children, and 162 non-sponsored children to respond to their needs in food security, health, and education.
Despite the rainy day and muddy road, Good Neighbors Philippines, together with the local volunteers and the barangay LGU in the community, went house-to-house to hand over the goods to the families and children.
It was made possible through generous donations from UPS Foundation, MediCard Foundation, and Sun Life Foundation. UPS Foundation provided us with cash donations converted to food items, like rice and grocery items. Health kits for the children courtesy of MediCard Foundation and school bags and supplies for the children from Sun Life Foundation.
“I am knocking on your good hearts and hoping for your help in supporting the communities of Sitio Bakal and Sitio Ibayo,” Wilfredo Cara, Chairman of Barangay Bagong Silangan said.
(Nanawagan po ako sa mga may mabuting kalooban at sana po ay tumulong din po tayo upang maagapayan ang Sitio Bakal at Sitio Ibayo ng Barangay Bagong Silangan.)
UPS Foundation also provided 100 gallons of alcohol and 10 thermal gun scanners for the frontliners of Sitio Bakal, Sitio Ibayo, and Barangay Bagong Silangan.
If you can be a good neighbor, too, please donate and support us for the children, youth, and community.
