Panlaban sa COVID-19: Isko Moreno gives 10K free washable masks to residents


Manila Mayor Isko Moreno on Thursday, June 25, turned over 10,000 handmade washable face masks to 30 barangays in the city.

The washable masks were produced from a livelihood program initiated by the Manila City government through its Public Employment Service Office (PESO).

Moreno said the city government plans to produce about one million handmade washable face masks for his constituents.

“We will try to reach as many as possible. When we produce, we deliver. So may trabaho na, may protekston pa sa barangay natin,” he said.

Sewers and master cutters hired by the Manila City government through the PESO may earn up to P2,000 each a day, depending on the amount of face masks produced.

Manila PESO chief Fernan Bermejo said the city government has hired about 50 sewers and 10 master cutters to sew masks.
