During the Enhanced Community Quarantine, Open Heart Foundation (OHF) conducted relief operation by giving grocery items to our needy beneficiaries and their families to ease their concerns of providing foods on the table. This was considered as the PHASE l of the three-pronged-approach envisioned by the Foundation as its pro-active response to the pandemic crisis. Phase l- was providing foods and goods to families who could not go out and work to earn a living.
Now that most of the areas are under General Community Quarantine (GCQ), and people were given a chance to work and earn, OHF moved forward towards the PHASE ll approach by helping out not only its beneficiaries but also its partners who are in the frontlines, Local Government Units (LGUs), school partners and ECCD teacher-partners. OHF donated boxes and packs of personal health protective items such as gallons of alcohol, goggles and face masks. Phase ll’s objective is to support our frontliners; whom we consider our present day heroes.
The OHF staffs conducted a series of coordination with the LGUs, schools and day care centers in their respective areas of coverage and then scheduled the month of June as the start of distribution of health protective items. PHASE ll is still ongoing as of this writing.
The beneficiaries of the health protective items (HPI) were the OHF’S LGU partners and Health Care Workers in Fairview in Quezon City, Carmona, GMA and Silang in Cavite, Binan in Laguna, Catarman in Northern Samar, and Rodriguez in Rizal. OHF also donated sets of HPIs to Marinduque State College. ECCD partners in NCR and nearby towns are also among those beneficiaries.
Looking forward to our PHASE lll approach which we hope to accomplish before classes start!
In this battle of CoVid-19 pandemic, let us work together to completely eradicate this life-threatening virus. Let us also join the government’s call to “Stay Home to Save Lives” and educate ourselves on the CoVid Protocols and Safety Measures.
