Mum Shares: These Women Have Become The Light Of Hope In Their Communities Amidst The COVID-19 Pandemic

In this time of Enhanced Community Quarantine {ECQ}, some of us might have already felt the urge to think of ways we can lend a helping hand. When the opportunity to provide assistance have come knocking on the doors of some ordinary, everyday women like Marielle Solomon, Sarah Jane de la Rosa, Pia Alviola, Melissa Olit, and Angela Lapinosa, they embraced the chance to help and made things happen! They have been voluntarily and wholeheartedly taking on tasks of providing food, of sourcing for relief goods, of creating PPEs, and mobilizing resources for Filipinos in COVID-harm’s way. They didn’t think twice to go out of their comfort zones to share a part of themselves and be a light to others.

Through her efforts, Marielle is just one of the women who bring the light to the island of Siargao.
