Who do we turn to in times of crisis? Question we often ask ourselves when confronted with an imminent threat… A certain cooperative dared to defy odds. The Camella 2-D Multi-Purpose Cooperative answered the call by providing aid to their members and that of the community. Armed only with a sense of bayanihan, they dispersed and implemented distribution of snacks to the frontliners in Ospital ng Muntinlupa, 4 kilos of rice to tricycle drivers and nearby communities, and 3 kilos of rice to every member of the cooperative. To date, the cooperative is still finding ways to contribute more to the community.
To quote “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King.
