Students from Palawan State University (PSU) School of Law (SOL) mounted relief support for the frontliners in the fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Some 190 food packs, water bottles, and face masks were distributed Friday to the health workers at the hospitals, and to certain personnel manning the checkpoints.

Christian Jade De Vera, a law student, said that the financial contributions solicited came from the allowance of each student citing that they were putting it into better use in line with the suspension of classes.

“Every small deed that we can do if we all give our fair share, it will go a long way, our micro efforts will surely have a macro effect on our society. This is the perfect time to show love, compassion, and empathy,” he said.

Some 90 food packs and bottled waters were already distributed Friday morning to different hospitals and certain checkpoints throughout the city.

The relief effort would continue until Saturday, however, pledges are still coming in to extend aid and support.
