Hontiveros sends food, vitamins to senior citizens: ‘Para ligtas at healthy sila'




Opposition senator Risa Hontiveros the lone senator who did not vote for the Bayanhihan We Heal as One Act which gave the extra powers to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to realign the national budget for the projects of the national government against the novel coronavirus 2019 or covid-19.
Senator Hontiveros mobilized resources to send food and medicine assistance to one of the vulnerable sectors of society during this crisis – the senior citizens- who have been advised to stay indoors during the Luzon lockdown.

The “Lakas-Resistensiya packs” are being delivered by Hontiveros and her team to the elderly living in select communities in Metro Manila (MM).

“Ang hiling ko po: tayo na po mismo ang maghatid ng mga goods sa mga senior citizens para ‘di na sila lumabas ng bahay. Let’s make sure na ligtas at healthy sila,” Hontiveros said in her Facebook post.

The relief goods consists of the following: milk, rice, canned tuna, face masks and vitamins.
Senior citizens from Quezon City, Malabon City and Caloocan City are the beneficiaries.

“Nagbaba tayo ng bigas, gatas, canned tuna, crackers, face masks, at multivitamins para sa 1,300 Lakas-Resistensiya packs na ibibigay sa kanilang senior citizens,” Hontiveros said in another Facebook post.
“Para sa first batch, nakapag-turn over na tayo ng supplies para sa 4,700 nakatatanda. May delivery pa tayo sa mga susunod na araw!” she said.
Hontiveros also thanked the kind donors and volunteers for helping with the relief operations for the elderly.
“Muli, maraming salamat po sa lahat ng tulong! Maaari pa po kayong magpadala ng donasyon para mas maraming bayan pa ang maabot ng ating proyekto, she said.

She also sent some food packs to health workers and frontliners in three hospitals in Metro Manila. Hontiveros thanked them for their sacrifices and services to the nation.

“Nung nagpadala tayo ng supply ng multivitamins para sa mga health workers at frontliners ng UP PGH, Lung Center, at Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, sinamahan ko na rin ng personal letter para sa kanila: Maraming salamat sa inyong sakripisyo at patuloy na serbisyo. You give us hope. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Nagmamahal, Sen. Risa,” she said.
