Inmates From Gumaca, Quezon Create Face Masks for Taal Evacuees
Inmates from Gumaca, Quezon City created washable face masks to be donated to the victims of Taal Volcano Eruption in Batangas.
Many Filipinos are reaching out to those who have been harmed by the Taal Volcano eruption. From simple individuals to influential names in various fields make a way to provide assistance to their countrymen.
Recently, a Facebook netizen named Ella Mae Merilloza shared some photos of lady inmates creating washable face masks for Taal evacuees. A group of inmates from Gumaca, Quezon have shown that even though they are in prison, they can find ways to help evacuees in Batangas.
According to her post, even in the absence of machines, female inmates persevered in sewing face masks to reduce the risk of ashfall in Batangas severely affected by the eruption of the Taal Volcano. Their face masks are so full of love because they just do it with the hands.
“Kahit wala tayong makina na pantahi, na kahit sa kabila ng inyong sitwasyon hindi hadlang ang mga rehas upang makapaghatid kayo ng kaunting tulong para sa mga kapatid nating nasa Batangas na dumaranas ng ashfall. Sabi n’yo pa nga mam ang face mask na yan ay niyari na may pagmamahal…” Ella Mae said.
She also added that inmates have made good face masks because they can be washed and reused. This way the Batangueños will be able to use their face masks longer.
“Malaking tulong ito at matagal nila magagamit pagkat ang facemask n’yong gawa ay pwedeng labhan at gamitin muli,” Ella Mae added.
Ella Mae is proud to the inmates, although they may have their own problems, they have not been a barrier to thinking of others before themselves. Ella Mae also thanked her daughter Mykca for providing the material for the inmates to sew face masks.
