While schools are reopening in some corners of the world after pandemic induced closures, the Philippines remain its classes shut down due to COVID-19 crisis. With this, education is no exception, this catastrophe has exposed the numbers of insuffienciencies and partiality in our education system. If there’s another lesson that the pandemic has brought us, it is the importance of education. Thankfully enough, there are still some private companies who prioritize in helping the children and the youth in their education, just like Eurotel Hotel. Through the initiative of Mr. Edmundo G. Las, Director of Eurotel Hotel, they are sponsoring 10 students from Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila Scholars Foundation, Inc. (PLMSFI) for the year 2020-2021. “As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program, Eurotel Hotel is glad to help out by granting these students the opportunity to learn and grow despite the pandemic. The company believes that education is a vital part of growing as a person and a responsible Filipino as well. We hope that they will not forget our simple gesture thus, learn to share with people whenever they can”, the management shared. Eurotel Hotel continues to take further its cause in extending help to the community, by helping PLMSFI scholars who are in need, despite the current pandemic situation. “We are aware that in these trying times; education is not something to be overlooked. As we extend our assistance to these gifted individuals just as we hope for a better future. Like PLMSFI vision, we believe that no student must be deprived of a good college education. There is an old Chinese proverb that goes, “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody, and true happiness are found in helping others.” Mr. Edmundo added. The PLMSFI was established on August 1998 by a group of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) baccalaureate graduates it aims to preserve and promote the mark of PLM as a model university for the less privileged, intellectually deserving students of Manila. As of today, PLMSFI has fifty (50) scholar beneficiaries. Their goal for the next five years is to double the number of scholars or more and that would become possible if they can get more sustainable donations. “Even before the pandemic, there were major holes for many poor or low income families in the country who struggle to pay tuition fee for schools and lack of resources to cover emergency expenses. In this time of pandemic, all we need is care. We need more sensitivity. We need more people to care about one another; we should not let this pandemic, driven down the will and eagerness of the children and the youth to brighten up their education. Actions can really create hope,” the Director of Eurotel said.

The year 2020 has been tough for Filipinos as countless calamities ravaged our communities and a current pandemic that has been affecting our way of life. Just last November, two devastating back-to-back Typhoons hit the country which affected hundreds of thousands of our kababayans in Luzon. On November 1, Super Typhoon Rolly, considered the strongest typhoon ever recorded in recent history struck the southern region of the Philippines, and an estimated two million Filipinos have been affected, many of whom lost their homes and livelihood. Less than two weeks after, Typhoon Ulysses resulted in extreme flooding in provinces, including Metro Manila and some parts of Central and Nothern Luzon, that previously devastated by Typhoon Rolly. Eurotel Hotel on helping affected Filipino families In the past months, we have witnessed how Filipinos worked together to provide support and aid to affected communities and families. One of the companies that have been constantly extending emergency relief efforts is Eurotel Hotel. ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME. Eurotel Hotel volunteers reached forward to the typhoon-stricken community of Sitio Kayrupa, Barangay San Rafael, Rizal last November 29, 2020. A total of 300 relief goods such as clothing, food packs, toys, and vitamins were given to the affected residents.
Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 18) — Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has ordered hotels and motels in the city to aid health workers amid the government’s strict quarantine measures to contain the coronavirus disease. Moreno announced Wednesday that he signed an executive order requiring these establishments to allow health workers in city and national government hospitals to use their facilities as a staging area. “Ito po ay gagamitin ng ating mga frontliners sa health sector -- mga pasilidad pangkalusugan na pag-aari ng lokal at pasilidad pangkalusugan pag-aari ng nasyonal,” said Moreno in a video posted on Facebook. [Translation: These will be used by our frontliners from the health sector - those from local and national health facilities.] This is to accommodate in particular those who live outside Manila as the entire Luzon remains under “enhanced community quarantine” — travel to and from the island is restricted and mass transportation is suspended. The order means that workers can book themselves into hotels for free, Manila Public Information Office chief Julius Leonen clarified. Moreno said he had already spoken to three hotel companies - SOGO, Eurotel and Town and Country - who agreed to provide accommodations to the city’s frontliners who are living outside of the city. There are 421 rooms available from SOGO, 50 rooms from Eurotel and 60 rooms from Town and Country, he said. The mayor added that he also instructed the city’s health department to coordinate with the establishments to determine who can avail of the free rooms. The Quezon City government also made a similar arrangement with a partner hotel. Mayor Joy Belmonte announced in a press conference that 100 rooms were made available to the city’s health workers while separate rooms will be used for persons under monitoring for possible infection. In Albay, the Mayon Skyline Hotel, located about four kilometers away from the Mayon Volcano, will be a quarantine facility for persons confirmed with the disease that has already infected over 200 people in the country and killed 17 others. On Tuesday, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles announced that hotels in Luzon are no longer allowed to operate during the quarantine period, except those with existing bookings from foreigners and those with long-term leases. They can also no longer accept new bookings.
