Senator Nancy Binay appealed to members of the Tourism Congress of the Philippines (TCP) to donate pillows and beddings and other essentials to designated Covid-19 quarantine centers amid halted production of bedding essentials due to the imposition of the enhanced community quarantine throughout Luzon.

“The hospitals and quarantine centers are already too overwhelmed and preoccupied. Broadly speaking, the TCP can be the backline in this fight against Covid-19 by giving out soaps, donating pillows and linens, and other accessories to our quarantine centers,” Binay said in a statement.

The chairperson of the Senate Committee on Tourism said that due to the halted production of bedding essentials, TCP is now in a unique position to help and complement hospitals and local quarantine centers.

“They have the backbone in providing viable solutions to quarantine challenges at this very critical time. They are definitely well-equipped to deal with the issue of hygiene. Even donating soap can already spell hope,” Binay said.

The lawmaker said she is optimistic that many establishments would answer the call for help, even if the tourism industry is also taking a massive hit due to the global pandemic.

“This would require sacrifice on the part of the private sector, pero naniniwala akong marami sa mga partners natin sa Tourism Congress ay willing naman tumulong at gawin ang makakaya para malagpasan natin ang krisis na ito (but I believe that many of our partners in the TCP are willing to help and do everything possible for us to survive this crisis),” Binay.

The TCP is the government’s private sector counterpart created under the Tourism Act of 2009 (RA 9593). TCP represents tourism establishments like hotels, resorts, theme parks, travel and tour operators and other stakeholders in the country’s tourism industry. (PNA)
