Over the month of April, the Antique cluster distributed organic food to various hospitals and quarantined areas in Antique. This initiative called “Burubligay Kita” continued over the course of one month. Here are the details as provided by the members:
The ESSA Antique Cluster came up with the idea, led by the health sector and their Chairwoman to provide healthy and organic fruits and vegetables to the hospitals here in the province of Antique. Not only to provide food to frontliners but also to promote our advocacy: ” food as a medicine, Eat healthy to own a healthy body”. In these activities the are also helping local farmers by buying their produce, because they are not able to sell in the markets due to lockdown. May these good actions touch the heart of each one of us especially Antiqueños! Despite this pandemic,we can do our own little way to lift up each other. May this simple act of kindness bring hope and impact to everyone.
