CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Philantropist Joshua A. Calderon is going to lead his team in the distribution of relief goods today (May 22), at 2pm, to the frontliners especially in the checkpoints in the city, and also in the boundary of Libona in Bukidnon.
Calderon said the tasks and responsibilities of the frontliners are not easy as they risk their lives everytime they are manning the checkpoints.
“They are dealing with a very dangerous enemy that is covid-19 and anytime they could be infected with the deadly virus,” says Calderon, CEO and president of Jocals688 Beauty and Wellness Products, Inc.
Since the start of covid19 a few months ago his company has been helping the frontliners all over the Philippines.
“Aduna usab kitay mga branches sa tibuok Pilipinas nga naghimo usab ug mga pagtabang sa mga frontliners ug mga less fortunate nato nga mga kaigsoonan.”
Mr Calderon, also widely known as Jocals has been helping in Cagayan de Oro.
He has also distributed rice and cash assistance to the blind masseurs in Barangay 40 who lost their jobs when City Mayor Oscar Moreno ordered the area closed due to reported covid19 cases in the city.
Jocals also became famous over Magnum Radio when he helped a trike driver who donated his P200 income to the family of a person who committed suicide due to massive poverty.
Just like other people and good samaritans in the city, Joshua has also admired the heart of a man who despite their hand-to-mouth surviving situation he still managed to donate his daily income.
“Atong gihatagan siya ug reward sa iyang kabuotan ug pagka maayong tawo. Adtong nabalitaan nga gaabang lang siya sa iyang sikad, so atong gipalitan ug iyang kaugalingong sikad para dili na siya mangabang ug mas dako na iyang mauli sa pamilya,” Philantropist Joshua Calderon pointed out.
