ABOUT THE COVID-19 PROJECT NOAH
Covid-19 Project NOAH is an initiative of Youtube Vlogger and Influencer Joel Calamba Escol. The ultimate goal is to encourage people to help in supporting the milk and diaper needs of children in Calaanan Relocation Site in Barangay Canitoan, and other affected areas in the city, whose parents were retrenched from their works due to the pandemic. It also aims to help the children of informal workers like street vendors, market vendors, trisikad and motorela drivers who are the most affected workers in this trying time of the pandemic.
Most of the beneficiaries of Covid-19 Project Noah are also survivors of Typhoon Sendong which left thousands of residents dead and hundreds missing, and also destroyed millions of properties in the city many years ago.
Covid-19 Project NOAH has already distributed milk and diapers at the relocation with the help of friends and supporters of Influencer Joel Calamba Escol a.k.a Noypi Vlogger.
