Zonta Club of Cebu I Donates Personal Protective Equipment
The Zonta Club of Cebu I donated 12 personal protective equipment (PPE) gear and 500 washable masks to the Bayanihan Cebu IEC Field Center in Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City on 15 July. The Bayanihan Cebu IEC Field Center has served as an isolation and treatment facility for COVID-19 patients in Cebu.
Zontians Dr. Jenny Rosello, Zeny Uy and Be Smith delivered the items to the facility.
The PPE and washable masks were sewn by the Budlaan Community Sewing Project, according to Uy, head of the Zonta club’s livelihood committee.
The Zonta Club of Cebu I has been supporting the Budlaan Community Sewing Project since 2004 in collaboration with Budlaan Barangay Captain Nerissa Antolijao. The group has 15 participants, who had various projects like sewing school uniforms, helper and driver’s uniforms, quilted blankets, veterinary clothing and pet clothes.
In April, responding to the needs created by COVID-19, the Zonta club commissioned the Budlaan Community Sewing Project participants to make hand-sewn washable masks and personal protective garments.
