Angel Locsin, Atom Araullo, and other celebs show concern about the poor during community quarantine

Right on the first day of the quarantine both GMA Network and ABS-CBN personalities have shown concern towards poor families.

President Rodrigo Duterte has placed Metro Manila under community quarantine from March 15 until April 12, 2020 to stop the spread of COVID-19 or also known as coronavirus.

Right on the first day of the quarantine both GMA and ABS-CBN personalities have shown concern towards poor families.

Actress Rita Avila is worried about the less fortunate families who still need to pay utility bills, rental fees and hope that everyone with excess stocks could share their blessings to these people, as they are the ones who need thorough aid.

Sa panahon ng lockdown, kawawa po talaga ang mga mahihirap. Di naman po talaga sila makakakilos agad para proteksyonan ang sarili nila. Kung may mga sobra-sobrang relief goods sa mga bodega ng gobyerno o mga kumpanya o sa bahay natin, yung hindi EXPIRED na pagkain, yung hindi MARUMI O MABAHONG lumang damit at kumot (dahil TAO po sila na dapat bigyan ng dignidad at respeto)… mag-share po tayo. #covid19 #pilipino #bayanihan #reliefgoods #basicgoods #share #help

Kapuso star Kiray Celis was worried about people who peddle goods on the street to make a living.

Filipino-indie singer Bullet Dumas stated that the lockdown and social distancing are only applicable to upper and middle classes who worry about which series on Netflix to watch, unlike the lower class who struggle every day to put food on the table for their families.

Filmmaker Antoinette Jadaone and Atom Araullo stressed out that “privileged” people should be thankful as the lower class has no options but to make ends meet despite the Metro Manila lockdown, just like what happened to motorbikers, delivery personnel who have been in line for 3 consecutive hours just to get through San Jose Del Monte.

Meanwhile, Juan Miguel Severo who is known for being outspoken, suggests employers to provide an emergency allowance to avoid employees risking their lives just to make a living, and remind people to stay out of the street and keep themselves locked inside of their homse.

Angel Locsin explained why there are still people who risk their lives on the streets to go to work despite the Metro Manila lockdown and social distancing policy given by the President. According to Angel, those people consist of contractual workers, self-employed with no assurance of earning sufficient funds to put food on the table for their families. Angel also emphasized that if only the government can provide financial support, these workers no longer need to risks their lives of being infected by the virus.

She emphasized the importance of putting a temporary stop on amortizations and loans, as people can use these funds to buy food and other necessities.

Angel said: “Marami rin po sa kanila ay mga contractual workers, mga self-employed, maliliit na manininda na walang tiyak na kita sa araw-araw at baon sa utang.

“Kung matitiyak lang po sana ng ating pamahalaan na may financial support para sa kanila, hindi nila kelangang sumugal sa labas. Malaking bagay din kung may temporary stop on amortizations and loans o kahit pagtanggal sa interest & penalties.

“Sana rin ay magbigay ng consideration ang mga kumpanya ng basic utilities like kuryente at tubig bilang kawang-gawa sa mga mahihirap na apektado ng dislocation sa trabaho. Sa mga companies na tumulong sa mga empleyado, sana bigyan po ng tax break para wag malubog ang mga kumpanya.”

My thoughts: Sa gitna po ng paglaganap ng CoVid19, walang sinoman na nasa matinong pag-iisip ang magnanais na lumabas sa matataong lugar para mahawa at makahawa ng sakit. Alam natin na importante ang social distancing at proper hygiene pero hindi po ito sasapat kung may mga kababayan tayo na kelangang maghanapbuhay bawat-araw para makakain at matustusan ang mga basic needs ng pamilya gaya ng pambayad sa renta, kuryente, tubig, at iba pa. Marami rin po sa kanila ay mga contractual workers, mga self-employed, maliliit na manininda na walang tiyak na kita sa araw-araw at baon sa utang. Kung matitiyak lang po sana ng ating pamahalaan na may financial support para sa kanila, hindi nila kelangang sumugal sa labas. Malaking bagay din kung may temporary stop on amortizations and loans o kahit pagtanggal sa interest & penalties. Sana rin ay magbigay ng consideration ang mga kumpanya ng basic utilities like kuryente at tubig bilang kawang-gawa sa mga mahihirap na apektado ng dislocation sa trabaho. Sa mga companies na tumulong sa mga empleyado, sana bigyan po ng tax break para wag malubog ang mga kumpanya. And also, I hope Philhealth will shoulder treatment for those who have CoVid19. Maraming salamat po sa ating mga public officials, pulis, military, etc na gumagawa at nagpapatupad ng batas para po sa kaligtasan natin. Maraming salamat rin po sa mga totoong IDOL, ang ating mga walang kapagurang health workers. Kaya natin ‘to 🙂
