The Metro Dumaguete Water is throwing its support to the Brigada Eskwela program of the Department of Education by donating essential hygiene kits and supplies to 25 public schools here.
Kathleen Young Ricardo, communications officer of the MDW, in a media release on Wednesday said the distribution of the donation is ongoing, in cooperation with the DepEd City Division, headed by City Schools Supt. Gregorio Cyrus Elojorde.
Elojorde said the donation will help in the modular learning approach of the schools, given their limited resources.
More than 90 percent of schools in the City are implementing the modular learning approach, which parents and students have opted for due to limited Internet access.
MDW Chief Operating Officer David Berba headed the team that visited and turned over the donations to the public schools, starting on Oct. 5.
“We want to assure our teachers and students of MDW’s support, especially during this difficult adjustment period. While we strive to provide improved water pressure and supply to our schools, we also wish to help in other ways as a partner of growth in the community,” Berba said in the statement.
Meanwhile, the MDW is continuing its donation of handwashing equipment to different schools. (Judy F. Partlow/PNA)
