Binisita ni ARTA Director General Jeremiah Belgica ang Maginhawa Community Pantry sa Brgy. Teacher’s Village East, QC ngayong Abril 20 bandang 1:00 p.m. para siguruhin na walang permit at koordinasyon lang sa LGU ang kakailanganin nito.
Ito’y kasunod ng naging pahayag ng isang opisyal na kailangan diumano pa ng permit bago makapag-opera ang volunteers sa pantry.
Hinikayat din ng Director General ang Brgy. Teacher’s Village East na maglaan ng mga espasyo sa mga katulad na inisyatibo para masiguro na nasusunod pa rin ang health protocols.
“We at ARTA wants to ensure that bureaucracy is not getting in the way of public service. Ang public service shared responsibility ‘yan. ‘Yung mga ganitong effort napakaganda. Dapat lang natin siguraduhing maayos na malulunsad ang mga ganitong inisyatibo. Maganda siguro gawin na nating community effort ang pantry with the support of barangay. This really puts to action Christ’s teaching, ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself’,” pahayag ng ARTA Czar.
Kasabay ring nanawagan ang Director General na huwag bahiran ng pulitika ang ika niya’y bayanihan ngayong panahon ng pandemya.
