LGBTQ groups in Tabaco City create 800 masks for coronavirus front-liners

TABACO CITY, Albay – An organization of members of the LGBTQ communities here has offered their help for front liners responding to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Up to 800 face masks have been made by the Tabak Sangre group for the city’s health workers.

According to Tabak Sangre president Phem Baliwag, this is their way of contributing to the destruction of the COVID-19 spread.

On Wednesday night, the group went to several hospitals in the city to personally donate face masks.

Today, there are donors who seem to be giving them fabric and garter tools for making face masks.

All they need now is a sewing machine because they only use 2.

Whoever lends to them is a great help in making face masks easier.

The next batch of face masks will be given to barangay health workers who are leading the monitoring of households.

According to the Department of Health’s last report on Thursday, COVID-19 cases have reached 217 in the country.
