PLDT-Smart Foundation & TV5 Alagang Kapatid Gives Assistance to LSIs

A lot of people got caught in lockdowns and weren't able to go back to their provinces. This is especially true at the Philippine Ports Authority where a lot of people got stranded. The PLDT-Smart Foundation along with TV5 Alagang Kapatid Foundation Inc., extended assistance to those stranded individuals by distributing snack packs and raincoats, as well as giving health advises and tips.

"We hope to provide some comfort and nourishment to over 200 LSIs patiently waiting at the port area for a ship that could transport them to their respective homes in places such as Basilan, Jolo, Sulu, Cagayan De Oro, Butuan City, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Cebu," said Ma. Esther Santos, President of PLDT-Smart Foundation. "Though they are sad and distressed at having to wait for days and weeks in less thanideal conditions, well-meaning people who call on them to see how they're doing, and the prospect of getting home eventually, lift their spirits."

LSIs include workers, students, and other individuals stranded in Manila and nearby areas- most of them enduring the devastating economic effects of the quarantine restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. These individuals expressed their intention to go back to their original residence.

Under the government's Hatid Tulog program, LSIs will be brought back to their home provinces after coordinating with the relevant local government units and LSIs having completed health requirements.

PSF and AKFI's has a lot of other outreach activities slated this July which coincides with the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Week this month.
