Dear MC Community,
Pax et Bonum!
The COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis certainly brought us a life-changing phenomenon that every member of a community has to face and to deal with. Unfortunately, it is a fact that in this time of great crisis, many members of our community are adversely affected. The desire to be of help to the most vulnerable sectors of our society is being shown by different individuals, groups and organizations. In this regard, it is but fitting to share to the community how Miriam College is responding to this overwhelming pressure of helping the needy sectors of our community e.g., MC partner communities, outsourced personnel and our project-based employees.
A total of 170 packages of canned goods were distributed to the members of the Kaisahang Ugnayan ng mga Mamamayan (KUM) who come from the five partner communities of Miriam College namely, Daan Tubo, Kaingin 1, Pook Libis, Mary Town, Park 7. The KUM members have expressed their gratitude to Miriam College for its readiness to help. MISMO would like to extend its sincere gratitude to the Office of the President, OVPAA, OVPF and the HRD for their assistance. Special thanks also to JP Bumanglag, one of our drivers and to our security guards who helped deliver the goods.
In order to address the predicament that some of the members of the MC community is facing, a call for financial assistance was announced through the MC email. The financial donations will be used to cover some basic needs of our employees who will not be able to receive their regular wages during the lockdown. The members of the MC community are encouraged to contribute to this cause. Please refer to the email sent by the VPAA.
MISMO also sought the approval of the President to utilize the amount of one hundred thousand pesos (P100,000.00) from the MISMO Disaster Response Fund to augment the financial assistance to be given to our outsourced personnel and project-based employees. Thanks to our President, Ms. Laura Del Rosario for approving the request.
In this time of great crisis, let us continue to pray for each other, particularly those who are infected of the disease and/or are threatened by infection.
