Red Cross – Nationwide Food Package Distribution
In order to create a positive atmosphere among the members of the community who have disabilities, the Philippine Red Cross – Nueva Ecija Chapter participated in this Nationwide Food Package Distribution held at Bongabon Nueva Ecija on January 8, 2021.
The activity was headed by Mrs. Elena Ladignon, Chapter Administrator of PRC – Nueva Ecija Chapter. PRC – NE Board of Director Mrs. Celia Inducil and Mayor Allan Gamilla were present during the distribution.
PRC – NE Chapter also deployed a Kitchen Mobile to provide hot meals during the activity. During the distribution, everyone practice social distancing and use PPE's. LGU Bongabon also distributed goods for the beneficiaries.
This project reflects a growing understanding that PWDs have been amongst the most vulnerable population affected by COVID-19 pandemic due to many health concerns, social and environmental barriers, discriminatory attitudes and inaccessible infrastructure.
