VIRAC, Catanduanes – Catanduanes State University (CSU) has found a unique way, Sunday, to help people in times of need during the enhanced community quarantine.
The “Catanduanes Bayanihan Movement: Take or Share Booth” was launched by CSU President Dr. Minerva Morales.
According to Morales, after their small initiatives to the community, they thought of coming-up with a project that would supplement the other needs of lockdown-affected families in the province.
The project would allow other willing and kind-hearted benefactors to just drop-in their donations, particularly basic food necessities, to be shared to fellow Catandunganons who are in need.
Beneficiaries will automatically get one kilo of rice with three pieces of eggs, and an additional two items of basic food necessities like coffee, and sugar.
However, the project would only limit to more or less 100 families per day depending on the supplies.
Dr. Morales underscored that it was a way to spread kindness to everyone in the province during these trying times.
“We are hoping that this ‘bayanihan’ act will continue beyond COVID-19,” Morales said.
