Filipino commuters get water, hygiene support amid GCQ

WASH IN PANDEMIC FOR FILIPINO COMMUTERS—Commuting in Metro Manila has been extra challenging under the General Community Quarantine (GCQ), which is still imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To help commuters stay safe and hydrated during their long commute to work and help ease the discomfort of transportation personnel while working under warm and humid conditions, Manila Water Foundation (MWF) went to several MRT and LRT stations on June 8 to hand out and turn over drinking water, snacks, and isopropyl and ethyl alcohol to hundreds of Filipino commuters, MMDA personnel, train operators and station officers.

MWF distributed 1,000 pieces of Healthy Family bottled water, 540 bottles of isopropyl alcohol from Dragon Edge Group (makers of Beach Hut), 25 gallons of Cleene ethyl alcohol from Philusa Corporation, and snacks from Manila Water Company.

The Foundation continues to bring WASH—water access, sanitation, and hygiene education—which is crucial in this time of the pandemic.
