Hygiene Kits for Dumaguete Schools
Communications officer of the MDW Katherine Young Ricardo, said that the donation is ongoing in cooperation with the DepEd city division, headed by City Schools Superintendent Gregorio Cyrus Elojorde. MDW chief operating officer David Berba headed the team that visited and turned over the donations to the public schools, starting last October 5, to date. Elojorde said the donation will help in the modular learning approach of the schools, given their limited resources.
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,” said Berba.
