In this time of crisis and trying times, good samaritans can still be found. In a phone interview of Kabayan Noli De Castro in his teleradyo show in DZMM this morning with Mr. Beda Manalac of Solid Group Inc, it is heartwarming to learn that they are offering their dormitory facility in Tandang Sora, Quezon City to Frontliners as a temporary shelter.
MyRainbow Place Place Dormitory for frontliners
MyRainbow Place Place Dormitory, located at Banlat Tandang Sora, Quezon City is said to have 104 rooms divided into 5 buildings or clusters. Each room can accommodate four (4) people and has bunk beds, CR, tables and chairs. It was built using modern prefab technology by MyHouse and built to help students and young working professionals.
According to Mr. Manalac, since their student tenants are home and there are four available clusters, they wanted to OFFER it as temporary shelter of Frontliners like medical officers and nurses who are far away from their homes.
Partnership with local government
At this moment, Mr. Manalac said that they are already in contact with Quezon City Hall, Mayor Joy Belmonte’s office to propagate the initiative since the office of the mayor will be the one to contact the hospitals, and to set guidelines to whom can avail the free offering. As per Mr. Manalac, there are also other good samaritans that have approached them to offer food for our frontliners.
In a separate interview today of Mr. Manalac with Net 25, he mentioned that helping the Frontliners is not enough until we are able to build new rooms for quarantine and treatment. And has mentioned that they have developed a field hospital center proposal that is fast to build and help our overloaded hospitals.
Upon checking the pages of Solid Group, we came across their other company “MyHouse”. It has a project for FIELD HOSPITALS FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASE. According to the information we gathered on their page, it was the same technology used by China in building quarantine hospitals for their COVID-19 patients. And we hope to learn more about these projects soon.
In times that we might think that we are losing hope, it’s good to know that there are still good people who are out there to help us, our country and our kababayan. We want to see more positive news like this, right?
