Mabalacat teachers produce 420 DIY face shields for Covid-19 frontliners
Teachers from Mabalacat City produced about 420 do-it-yourself face shields and distributed them to frontliners in the battle against coronavirus disease (Covid-19), according to the Philippine Information Agency.
The drive was begun by teachers from Atlu Bola High School who initially made 120 face covers out of the school’s lamination film stocks originally intended for the development of instructional materials, PIA said in its report.
Mauaque Resettlement High School made another 100 shields out of scrap fabric, foam, laminating film and garter, the report said.
Mabalacat Tech-Voc High School, on the other hand, made 200 face covers from the same materials.
School Governance and Operations Division Chief Supervisor Roger Nuqui said the production of face shields was made possible through the leadership of Nathaniel Soriano, Arlene Vidal and Ariel Calma.
“These school heads together with their teachers exerted time, resources and effort to offer helping hands and share their contribution to barangay police, health workers, security guards, uniformed personnel and other frontliners who battle the COVID-19,” Nuqui added.
Despite of the difficulties of traveling due to the ongoing enhanced community quarantine, these mentors saw the best opportunity to help in a manner innate for teachers, the report said.
“Somewhere along the way we must learn that there is nothing greater than to do something for other. I hope this will create a chain of kindness, through their own little ways but with bigger results,” Nuqui added.
