PICE CARES

“We Heal As One – amidst the COVID-19  Crisis”

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Chapter Colleagues, 

Our Chapter is undertaking a rice-giving activity for trisikad drivers. 

This activity is aligned with the PICE National Statement on the Covid-19 crisis, signed by National President Dr. Suero on April 3, 2020. We quote, “PICE Chapters are encouraged to donate food and other necessities to the less fortunate and the needy”.

This activity is also the implementation of the BOD agreement last April 4, 2020 to reserve our excess funds from previous donations, for use in the Covid-19 crisis. Instead of medical frontliners, we are selecting the poor sector, specifically the trisikad drivers sector.

For Batch 1, we are selecting two (2) barangays in Iligan City, namely: Mahayahay and Palao. PP Janet Domato who has connections with driver associations, and PP Romy Manzano who has connections to barangays, guided us in the selection and vetting of the list. 

For Batch 2, we will work on selecting another two (2) barangays, this time in Lanao del Norte.

Here are the specifics for Batch 1:

• No. of target recipients = 219

• Budget for 3 kg of rice per pax = P150.00

• Total Budget for 219 pax @ P150 each = P32,850.00

• Buying of Rice : c/o Janet and Des

• Repacking of Rice : c/o DE Aly Khan, Barmilah, Liza, Roel

• Transport/Distribution of Rice : c/o PPs Tata, Romy and Ely, others

• Target Distribution Date: April 21/22, 2020 at Palao and Mahayahay barangay halls

Other volunteers are very much welcome. However, remember to keep safe first.

We may not all be physically present for this activity, but everyone can contribute in one way or another. Our prayers that may this endeavor go smoothly will ensure its success.

With this activity, we know we can alleviate somehow the plight of some trisikad drivers. Together with their families, we know they will be grateful. But how we wish we could help more. Be that as it may, the thought of having done a few something good will warm our hearts. 

Thank you, everyone. God bless us all..
