Persons Deprived of Liberty or PDL’s inside the Puerto Princesa City Jail started to make their own version of face mask out of clothing materials or fabrics.
According to Jail Officer 1 Filly Erika Argueza, Community Relations Service Officer of City Jail, they just started today, March 18, after having the materials needed.
The face mask will be given for free for those PDL’s who can’t afford it but it is also for sale only on other PDL’s and City Jail personnel.
“Gumagawa po kami para may magamit ang PDL’s, libre po s’ya para doon sa mga di kayang makabili at pwede po siyang bilhin ng personnel sa halagang P15 bawat isa,” Argueza told Palawan Daily News.
As of now, only four female PDL’s are helping each other on sewing and making face mask but the City Jail management is hoping that more PDL’s will be interested to join them as the profit will be given directly to them.
“Apat pa lang sila sa ngayon pero sana dumami sila dahil sa kanila din naman mapupunta ang kita at magbibigay lang sila ng certain percentage dun sa livelihood fund namin dito sa loob,” Argueza added.
