The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) sent out its Hot Meals On Wheels to provide ready-to-eat meals to 200 lockdown affected residents, composed of persons with disability, solo parents, and senior citizens at Brgy. poblacion 2 and 4, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, Cavite, on October 05, 2021.
PRC Cavite Chapter, led by its administrator Luz Acencio, continues to roll out its Hot Meals On Wheels to provide immediate food assistance to the most vulnerable individuals of Cavite City. Recently, the chapter distributed food packs to 273 individuals at the isolation facilities and vaccination sites.
“Patuloy ang ating paghahatid ng pag-asa sa pamamagitan ng food truck sa Cavite upang matulungan ang naapektuhan ng lockdown. Malapit sa loob ko ang Cavite, dahil ang aking lola ay taga Cavite. Gayun pa man, kahit saan man sulok ng bansa, walang maiiwan sa panahon ng pandemya, at ang Red Cross ay nariyan kung saan ang tulong ay kailangan,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said as he emphasizes PRC’s Covid response.
PRC under the leadership of Chairman Gordon, started various initiatives like Bakuna Bus, Hot Meals on Wheels, Mobile Clinic, and Amphibian trucks to provide access to far-flung communities needing immediate assistance.
