GOOD SAMARITANS: Cordillerans' uplifting kindness in the midst of unrest

Amidst the unrest brought about by the coronavirus, there are small acts of kindness done by the Cordillerans to help others in their own little ways.

via igorotage.com

These are just few of the uplifting stories in the Cordillera region during these struggling times, where Cordillerans offered goodness, compassion, and assistance to other people.

Because that's what heroes do!

Such stories of kindness will inspire us to be unified as a nation combatting against an invisible adversary.

Mr. Tony Walang

Heads of green ice lettuce donated by Mr Tony Walang from his farm at Pinsao Proper were distributed to Baguio City's relief center, different barangays and skeletal workers in different offices in coordination with the Baguio City Veterinary Office under Dr. Brigit Piok.

A lot more can be harvested and Walang said these will again be donated.

For barangays and other agencies who want to harvest and those who have vehicles you may contact the PIO - Baguio at 09471470048 to link you up with the farmer.

Thank you Mr. Tony and Marlon Walang.

Ampucao, Itogon, Benguet sewers

Responding to the call of the times, Lamberto Curugan and his fellow tailors of LARNS Hill Association of Ampucao, Itogon Benguet felt that their expertise in sewing can be of help to the community by making affordable face masks that can be made available to the local community.

The municipality of Itogon has already placed a bulk order of washable facemasks and according to Curugan, they are capable of producing hundreds in a day.

Jollibee Legarda

The Baguio City Human Resource Management Office, In behalf of the City Government of Baguio, expressed their sincerest gratitude to Jollibee Legarda (c/o Ms. Lorna) for donating packs of food to the police at the Baguio City checkpoints.

Abra LGU

The Local Government of Abra, headed by Gov. Joy Valera Bernos, purchased vegetables from local farmers to be disseminated as relief goods instead of the usual canned goods and noodles.

She said this will benefit the farmers since delivering goods outside of Abra is not possible because of the Enhanced Community Quarantine being implemented.

Free vegetables

Meanwhile, some of our Cordilleran farmers are giving away free vegetables.

Carrots? anyone?

You can be a hero too, stay at home!

Stay at home because that's what heroes do.
