Para ‘di na gumastos: Isko Moreno, Honey Lacuna donate 1K tablets to Universidad de Manila students
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna donated 1,010 tablets to Universidad de Manila (UdM) students to help them cope with the blended learning in the new school year.
Moreno said the funds used to buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets were sourced from his modeling and talent fees from various private companies.
“Alam ko po ang hirap na dinaranas ng mga mag-aaral, lalo na mga mahihirap na nasa ating mga pampublikong paaralan,” he said.
Moreno turned over the tablets on September 24 to UDM president Malou Tiquia to assist students from poverty-stricken families to cope with the prevailing blended distance learning mode amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The modeling contracts from which Moreno obtained the funds for the tablets were:
-Chooks to Go
-Cosmic Technologies Inc.
-Better Option Pharmaceutical
