 ASINGAN- A physical disability is not a hindrance to help and be productive in helping our health frontliners in this time of COVID-19, where lack of Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) becomes a problem.

This was proven true by Samuel Villoria, Resident of the Federation of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in this town where he sewed 80 pieces of PPEs for the use of the town’s health frontliners.

Villoria, who figured out in an accident where he lost his right foot, gave his service free in sewing the PPEs.

“ It’s better to help other people out of love than doing nothing but to rant. The best way is to help,” Villoria said.

He said the materials for PPEs were provided by Vice Mayor Heidee G. Chua.

“She knows (that) I am a sewer having been sewing school uniforms in the past. I sewed eight pieces of PPEs daily with the help of Evolution Garment owned by our town mate London-based Nieves Pascua-Bates.

Villoria was able to produce also more than a hundred face masks that were given to frontliners in the Rural Health Unit (RHU), Asingan Police Station and barangays.

“If you can help, do it. Be a part of the solution and not to the problem,” Villoria said.

Councilor AIra G. Chua helped in sourcing out materials such as three rolls of fabrics, sewing threads, garters and zippers for the PPEs.
