Photos of Bamboo Face Shield Made From Mindanao
BAMBOO FACE SHIELD – MinDA chief Manny Piñol said the Bamboo face shields are handmade by members of Central Mindanao Green Workers Association.
Health authorities advised the public to wear face masks in public to protect themselves against the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Masks should be worn at all times to prevent the transmission of the deadly virus.
In a previous article, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año urged poor families to wear face masks even when inside their homes. He said it is also crucial to families with elderly members.
Aside from wearing face masks, Filipinos are also now required to wear a face shield. One of the designs that are currently making a trend is the Bamboo face shield made by Mindanaoeños.
Mindanao Development Authority (MinDa) chief Secretary Emmanuel “Manny” Piñol said on his FB post on Sunday, August 9, said that the face shields are made by the members of the Central Mindanao Green Workers Association. The designer of the Bamboo face shield, Engr. Junroe Barrios collaborated with the local bamboo farmers.
The MinDA chair also mentioned that the people who are working on the face shield are all working in their homes. He said the workers still need some support to establish a formal manufacturing area. They are in need of stripping equipment, working tables, and sanitary equipment.
“Let us support this group of farmers so that they could survive through the economic crisis while providing readily available and locally made Face Shields,” Piñol said.
