Alfred Vargas tells Pinoys to buy from friends who became online sellers during quarantine


Help a homie out!

Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas has a helpful tip to Filipinos during the pandemic. Rather than search far and wide for a group to donate to, sometimes the easiest and most effective way to help out kababayans in need is to check within your circles.

“More people from the middle class I know personally are suffering seriously. First they lost their jobs, then they used their savings,naubos ang ipon,nangutang,ngayon baon sa utang at wala pang makain. We need alternative livelihood opportunities now for everyone or we’re doomed,” Vargas explained to lay down the premise of his suggestion.

“If you have friends/neighbors who are selling or trying to supply stuff like food, grocery items, masks, PPEs, medicine, etc, just to support their family this time and earn a living, and kung kaya naman ng bulsa, bumili na tayo sa kanila. Let’s support each other this way,” he added.
