RCRM undertakes project in fight against COVID-19
ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — The Rotary Club of Rizal Mideast (RCRM) recently donated stainless steel hand washing facilities in different barangays and schools in Cainta and Antipolo City to help prevent or minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Danny D. Guevarra, president of RCRM, said the project, one of several being undertaken by the club, seeks to ensure healthier communities.
The hand washing facilities, each with four faucets, are also designed to ensure the supply of clean water and have proper sanitation facilities in the different areas and schools.
Guevara, together with PP Gerry Sevilla, Service Project Director, PP Felicito Gesite, PP Honorato De Leon Jr., PP Jun Sarreal, PP Hansel Hernandez, PE Boie Macatlang, PN Raul Umali, and Rotarians Gerry Galang, Charles Calamba, Ruthchelle Nacolanga, Ameg Caubang, Anne Lars, Faith Escresa, Ma. Teresa Galvez, Richeen Padua, Romel Ligutan, and Cherie Sandoval, handed over hand washing stations to Sitio Halang of Bgy San Isidro, Cainta, to Mambugan National High School in Antipolo City, and to the Barangay Hall of Sto. Domingo in Cainta last January.
The club also donated hand washing stations to Gov. Isidro Rodriguez Memorial National High School and Saint Gregory Elementary School, both in Cainta.
Guevarra said the project is expected to benefit about 20,000 people for all the 14 beneficiary sites. The hand washing stations were put up in strategic and accessible places.
This completes the District Grant project where RCRM is the lead club and was participated in by nine other Rotary Clubs of Zone 5A of D3800.
