“No man is an island.” – John Donne
Indeed, as the quotation above says, no one is a solitary being. We’re all beings that grow and strive together. Now, recent events in our lives have made it difficult to reach out to our peers, friends, or neighbors. Due to COVID-19, it has been hard to socialize and to connect with people outside our home.
Recently, a wonderful initiative has sprung in Maginhawa Street, Quezon City. People left food and essential supplies in what they call “Community Pantry”. These Community Pantries have then since spread out to the whole Metro. And our communities are not one to miss an opportunity to join in and show solidarity by providing food and sanitary essentials.
Check out the photos below to see some of the setups of our communities!
