CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – As the numbers of confirmed Covid 19 disease cases continue to rise in the Philippines with a number of deaths recorded, different cooperatives in our country are stepping up in finding ways of giving help not just to their members but also to our frontliners, our communities and our workers who are greatly affected by this global pandemic.
In these most trying times, several cooperatives in Region X have responded quickly to the challenges that this pandemic represents. There are cooperatives who have promptly implemented special assistance program and distributed rice packs, grocery items, multi-vitamins and allowances for their members. Whereas, some cooperatives in close coordination with their respective local government units have provided support to our health workers, community workers and our on-the-ground checkpoint police personnel by serving them ready to eat meals, bottled drinking water and vitamins. One cooperative in the region also donated decontamination sprayers and solutions to the 14 barangays of Cagayan de Oro City to help them in their fight against the spread of Covid 19.
Truly, now is right time that we uphold and live by our cooperative values of caring for others and social responsibility as we are facing this unprecedented time of great uncertainty. We are calling for solidarity among each of us, as a part of the cooperative movement in the Philippines that we draw strength from each other to help combat this deadly pandemic. #CoopsAgainstCOVID19
